  1. Hey Brian,

     

    Thank you for your awesome posts on A.E.F. Identification.  I am trying to get as-accurate-as-possible reproduction tags for my daughter's great-great grandfathers. Can I hire you to help me get the details right?

  2. For anyone interested, here's a link for the above mentioned eBay listing: https://www.ebay.com/i/303665037016?_trksid=p1.c100433.m3623&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20150526101906%26meid%3D724c21165f224241af370df92c480035%26pid%3D100433%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D4%26mehot%3Dnone%26b%3D1%26sd%3D203162148772%26itm%3D303665037016%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D1&ul_noapp=true
  3. Another example, currently on eBay as a "Buy It Now". One with a slightly different shield shape. No ID, but the service coat had a medical collar disc, sergeant chevron, one gold overseas service chevron, and a discharge chevron. I'm pretty sure that this is the first time I've seen a medical disc paired up with this style of shoulder patch.
  4. The hat and collar disc, which is Company F, 27th Infantry Regiment.
  5. A better look at the sheepskin lined coat, fur hat and fur mittens.
  6. An unidentified member of the 27th Infantry Regiment wearing the cold weather garb issued to U.S. troops destined for Siberia in 1918.
  7. An unnamed Doughboy and YMCA worker hanging out in front of a YMCA hut somewhere in France, circa 1918.
  8. A close inspection of the MG crew reveals that they are wearing the 81st "Wildcat" Division insignia. The 81st Division was reputed to have been wearing the Wildcat insignia when they arrived in France during the summer of 1918.
  9. A not so good close up of the ambulance following the above water cart.
  10. Close up of the 250 Gallon mule drawn water cart. There's no unit ID present that I can see.
  11. AEF watercart and ambulance on the move somewhere in France, circa 1918.
