  1. States people in Company "L" 322nd Infantry were from: N.C- 78 Ala.- 28 La- 22 S.C- 7 Tenn- 6 Fla.- 5 Ark- 4 Washington- 3 ILL- 3 CA- 2 Idaho- 2 PA- 2 KS- 2 VA- 2 OH-1 CO- 1 Miss- 1 Mass.- 1 OR- 1 UT- 1 Wiss.- 1 Minn.- 1
  2. Pics of journal, including page that says "Men that were in my squad Nov-9th-1918 in the Meuse Argone Offensive, also Hanson H.J of New York, N.Y who was blown into pieces by shrapnel- about 2 P.M, Nov. 10-18."
  3. I recently came across a box of papers, pictures, and a small journal belonging to Claude Sorrell in the 322nd infantry. The journal gives the 176 names and addresses of the men in his company and denotes the six men that were in his squad on November 8th during the Meuse Argonne Offensive. It outlines chronologically from his reporting in Raleigh, N.C on September 18, 1917 to his Discharge on June 25, 1919. Included is the route he took from basic to the frontline and also the 250 km hike to Beaune where he attended the A.E.F University. I have attached pictures and documents relating to his service which I have put in a binder and I am attatching a transcribed PDF document for anybody who is interested in this kind of stuff. -Jacob Claude Sorrell Diary.pdf
  4. Oh ok, that makes sense now, thanks
  5. I have the opportunity to buy this G-1 jacket. Can anyone tell me anything about the name patch. What is the AC in the wings?
  6. Hey guys, I don't collect modern helmets, so I thought I would pass on this auction on shopgoodwill to those who are. I don't know if it's real, but it looks good to me. http://www.shopgoodwill.com/auctions/Multicam-Camouflage-Helmet---Sz-SM-21522711.html
  7. I'll pick up a loupe tommorow and will put the pics up then. Also, what do you guys think about the gingerbred man being painted in yellow/gold?
  8. I believe it is just general wear, but it's hard to tell -JCF
  9. So I'm assuming that this is post-war paint?? -JCF
  10. It's about 3 inches tall. Maybe it is a late war occuaption helmet?
  11. There is a little wear if you look closely at it. Especially inside. Thanks. -Jacob F
