  1. Hello. Is this patch right on a WWII/post WWII uniform? I say its wrong because of the merrowed edge. It just looks too new to me but i am far from an expert. Others say its correct. What do you think?

  2. If any of you have seen my annoying posts (sorry btw) in the research section regarding my Great Grandfather you would know how obsessed I am with finding stuff related to his unit. A friend notified me about this yard long on eBay. It just happened to be my Great Grandfathers Regiment and Company! Unfortunately the picture was taken 8-9 days before my Great Grandfather got there. I still had to have it. I feel very lucky to have found it. Best part is it has been in a frame for years and is in great shape!

  3. Based on my research most of the Regiment was sent the 2nd Depot Division and used and Infantry replacements. I'm guessing for occupation duty after the war ended. C Company was mostly made up of draftees from Chicago called up in late September. A lot of men from the Company were used as Prisoner of War Escorts. This unit is very near and dear to me.

     

     

     

    It says Company F, 4th Pioneer. That would be the 4th Pioneer Infantry. Organised Feb 1918 at Camp Greene, NC; at Camp Wadsworth, SC Feb 1918; at Camp Stuart, VA wp 1918; at Port of Embarkation Newport News, VA Sep 1918; overseas from Sep 1918 to Feb 1919; Demobilized Feb 1919 at Camp Hill, VA. The 4th were Corps troops in France. Pioneer Infantry were classed as engineers, sort of the same as combat engineers, but doing more labor type missions. I find no campaign credit listed for them.
