And a little souvenir he brought home:
My grandfather also served in WWI, but the only photo I have of him in uniform is in a sealed frame that I hesitate to try to take apart.

I knew it was not going to last long on Ebay due to the Stolen Valor issue.

My Grandfather, Roy E. Brown, was a driver in the 337th Ambulance Company and served in the American-North Russian Expeditionary Force (ANREF). They were better known as "Polar Bears." He enlisted 3 August 1917; departed the US for England 22 July 1918; from England to the Archangle Front and served from 5 September 1918 to 15 June 1919; returned to the US 12 July 1919; and discharged 19 July 1919. Few people are aware that the ANREF was fighting the Bolsheviks (Red Russians) months after the Armistice was signed in November 1918.
This photo, part of a unit panoramic, was taken at Camp Custer, Michigan, in the winter of 1917-18.
Here is his WWI Victory Medal with the "Russia" clasp.

I have quite a few photos that I can contribute to this excellent thread. I've tried garnering some interest on another forum but that attempt seems to have fizzled out.
Thummbs up! to all the great images posted so far.
1) My first post will be a nice studio portrait of my favorite WWI division to collect- the 82nd! He's wearing a French style OS cap with a crossed rifles/US logo pin. Interesting variation of the 82nd Division patch.

Just from the sporran (sp) looks like Gordon Highlanders or Seaforth maybe??
I've had this photo for years and I always wondered why he was in the Scottish uniform (Maybe Blackwatch). This photo is in my county's Honor Roll and He was born in Pleasant Hope, MO near my home town. The listing says he volunteered July 26, 1917. Served in Mine Force, Base 17, US Naval Force. Sailed for France Dec 4th, 1917.
Anyone have an idea?

My great greandfather, William B. Wells, is on the right as you look at it, standing. Not sure where this was taken, all I know is it was sometime in 1918.
I really need to get this picture restored.
