  1. Here's a real contest: "Tent Pitching Contest 8th U.S. Inf. Pres[idio] of Monterey Cal Jan 1910."
  2. 18th U.S. Infantry, 1st Division team, circa 1919.
  3. I have to admit that my knowledge of World War II US helmets is limited. Can anyone shed light on this front-seam, swivel bail helmet? Any info. will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  4. Unidentified hospital scene. Possibly American University during the influenza outbreak. The sign above the stage reads "Pro Deo Et Patria" (for God and Country).
  5. The regimental band of the 322nd Infantry, 81st Division, with some French fans of the "Wildcat" Division in the background.

  7. I picked this up in southwest Missouri yesterday. I know it's a real longshot, but does anyone have any guesses as to the identity of this major general? Thanks!
  8. Muirhead Campbell served in the 5th Louisiana. It may be the same Muirhead Campbell who is buried under a non-government headstone in the Sacramento City Cemetery. He was born in 1819 and died in 1906.
  9. Unidentified tank destroyer couple, purchased in Lafayette, Indiana.
  10. I'm working on a living history impression of a WWI YMCA secretary. I'd like to have some boxes/shipping crates reproduced for my display. Does anyone have or know where I might find a YMCA marked shipping crate/box for any of the items they sent overseas? Thanks!
  11. I would like to get into WWI living history, but I’m getting a little “long in the tooth” to portray a soldier. I am thinking about putting together a Y.M.C.A. impression. Apart from getting a reproduction uniform and displaying original items distributed to soldiers by the “Y,” I’m wondering if forum members had any other ideas for such a display. Should I reprint some items to hand out to the public? (clearly marked as reproductions, of course). Give a short talk to the “troops” about topics that concerned the “Y”? Hand out hot chocolate (just kidding on that one). Any other ideas?
