Some where along the way since I began collection WW I & pre-WW I photographs of the U.S. Army & AEF I've accumulated a handful of USMC original photographs whose interest range vary from almost to a little bit. Therefore, you won't see any jaw-dropping 2nd Division star & Indian head shots, just images of U.S. Marines doing what they did all around the world and 'Over There' in France during the first two decades of the 20th century.
Feel free to comment on, or ask for closer views on any of the images posted below. Likewise, feel free to post any of your own USMC related photographs that hail from the end of the 19th century up until the end of the First World War.
Thanks for looking, World War I Nerd ...
I'll start off with a French Carte Postale of three unnamed Marines wearing Army issued olive drab service dress. The only insignia present are E,G & A cap Badges, USMC Collar Discs, one USMC Good Conduct Ribbon, a Marksman and Expert Marksman shooting badges.
