I'm working on a living history impression of a WWI YMCA secretary.  I'd like to have some boxes/shipping crates reproduced for my display.  Does anyone have or know where I might find a YMCA marked shipping crate/box for any of the items they sent overseas?

Thanks!

Hello!

 

By all means contact the YMCA National Headquarters.  Their archives have tons of valuable photographs of all aspects of their welfare work for the troops in WWI.  I am sure they would have something of use to you.  Good luck with your living history impression.  MHJ

AND - PLEASE share any info that you find!! A number of us who are getting a bit long in the tooth and broad in the beam are looking into YMCA guy impressions as we can't carry off the Soldier impression too well any more! I'm not quite to Billy Levere's size - but at least we know that folks his size were there!
