I have a small WWI grouping I'm going to sell but I'm trying get more info.Came directly from an estate about 5 yrs ago.

 

What do these markings indicate?

Most items(cap, mess kit, canteen cup, ad knife) have them:

A 301 A.T.  108

 

Included were EM Collar disc with "U.S." and "MG" over crossed rifles. Also, a pair of U.S cutouts and crossed cannon under "US".

I know the MG is Machine Gun and that is about all.

 

Thanks for any help.

“A”, 301 A.T. Would be Company A, 301st Ammunition Train....108 is likely the rack number/personal issue number...

AAHHH! Yes! I remember now that I have a "yard long photo" of the ammunition train unit it goes with. Have no idea why the MG insignia is there but it was with the grouping along with unnamed medals.

 

Thanks!
