What is more beautiful than a cuff rank tunic and leather getup...

A Captain in the York and lancaster... he spent the war in the USA as part of the armaments commission, came back in 1918 and joined the intelligence Corps in France for the last 3 months. I assume also for munitions work and did not see any fighting. Need some officers York and lancaster collar badges to finish it...

Sgt from the 5th Div. Summer tunic.

Hi Chris, are you sure that this isn't the 4th Division? The 5th is the red diamond, and this looks like the ivy leaves of the 4th. Scott.

I forgot to add, beautiful displays!!!

I just sold a nice 4th ID helmet from WWI on E-Pay about a month ago... I had 5th ID on my mind as I did 2 years with them in the 1980s. "RED DEVILS!" Scott.

Chris, Great uniforms, history and write ups. I will try to post mine. I don't have a lot of WW1, But I do have 3 to the US Army, and one to a California Naval Militia Officer. The Naval Militia Officer Lt. Adolph Berry Adam - I wrote a post on under "The Recipients Story". He was Naval so may not belong here. Captain Albert

Here's a beauty of a group to a Corporal Perry Thompson of the 301st Engineers. Interestingly, he was a photographer before the War, and during the War was the Company's official photographer! Needless to say, there are dozens of loose photos, and then a packed photo album of very-well-shot photographs of them during the War and on occupation duty. Fascinating. Also, the helmet has the mintiest liner I've ever seen

Very nice guys and well displayed! Chris thanks for showing the named German tunics with the history. I have found that on this side of the pond, obtaining a german Dunkelblau or Field-grey tunic with a history is darn near impossible. Thanks a ton for showing these.

I was going to post some but the forum was down yesterday, I will post mine this weekend.

Do we want just Army types, or do we want to show air service as well?

Uniform, cap, squadron pin to 1LT Bill Doran. Bill was assigned to the 99th Aero Squadron flying Salmson 2A2's during the war. He was at one point, withdrawn from the squadron to Corps level along with 3 other pilot/observer teams from teh 99th, and 4 pilots from the 104th Aero Squadron. These pilots were assigned to the 37 division for recon of their sector during the Argonne offensive. This detachment was, as far as I can tell, then assigned to the 32nd and 3rd Division's sectors for the remainder of the battle.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
