A recent portrait I picked up on eBay. I was the only bidder! 11th Aero Squadron pilot. I'm working on an ID...

Well, wouldn't you know it! I trade this thing away to Chuck and he finds a complete ID on the guy. Fighter ace Field Eugene Kindley. Good work Chuck!

Yeah...that's one of those eureka moments that we all know and cherish in the hobby. I was very fortunate to stumble upon a similar studio image of Kindley, but wearing a visor cap. Thank you for that opportunity, Brennan!

Unnamed photo I picked up off ebay for $1 before Christmas.  Got it, looked behind the image (I thought you were only supposed to do that with cased images?!) And found the Christmas note.  Based on where the seller bought this, I was able to identify him as Cpl Walter Eagle, Co G 168th Infantry (3rd Iowa).

Fairly clear image, my cellphone camera couldn't capture as well as a scan.

My first shot of 2018. One of my favorite gas mask shots in the collection. Taken in France, must be pretty early on in the war. He refers to the mask as a "gas helmet".

Great photo; looks like a British gas mask and an enlisted service coat with cuff braid added and officer's pin-on rank and collar insignia.

This is not a WWI period portrait....but Major General Paul B. Malone definitely had some WWI experience!

Malone (1872-1960, born in Middletown, New York) served in the Spanish-American War and commanded troops in the key battles in France in World War I (Chateau Thierry, St. Mihiel, Meuse-Argonne), where he was brevetted to Brigadier General.

He really had beautiful handwriting too!!

Are they used for the duration of the concert or just for the performance of "One?"

It looks like this guy came straight out of the field and right into the studio. Looks like he has mud on his helmet, boots and gas mask bag!

YMCA officer sporting a beautiful bullion District of Paris shoulder patch during a sitting at the famous R.Sobol studio. 

Hi. This photo is beautiful. Where have you heard about this R. Sobol photo studio ? Do you own any other photos shot by this studio during WWI ? Thank you

I don't usually spring for the studio shots, but this RPPC was cheap enough and has great clarity (even if my cell phone camera doesn't).

Los Angeles Express press photo of Sgt. Johnny Beckett "wearing his 'tin hat'." The Sept 26, 1918, release states that Beckett was the captain of the U of Oregon football team and is currently a lieutenant in the USMC.

That definitely isn't a Mk. I or m1917 helmet.  I suspect it's made of fiberboard, and I've seen similar "helmets" being worn by Marines in southern California.
