Greetings all,

I was wondering if anyone could help me solve the mystery of this WWI tunic I purchased. Being from Vermont, I had to purchase this tunic, it has a VT collar disk, Infantry collar disk, three service stripes, a YD patch and a coastal artillery gunner patch. When I looked up this guy due to initials on the trousers I found a soldier matching his description. If anyone could give thier input on this tunic it would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Roy

Your rank patch is for a PFC of Artillery. It looks like the 1st Vermont Infantry Became "F" Company, 102nd Ammunition Train, which would make it a Field Artillery support uniform. So, the disks pre-date the mobilization to the 26th Division, but I can imagine that nobody would have given him any grief about them during the war, especially since he was in a Vermont unit and wearing VT insignia.

 

Nice and interesting tunic.

 

Allan
