ID of this Uniform and period

Recommended Posts

That photo is more like 1920- or thereabouts. It looks to date roughly from 1911-1921.


I don't recognize the 'VS' badge, but it may be for the Vermont State Guard?

I'm thinking pre-WWI. It looks like he has rimless buttons and the tops of his leggings look to be a pair of the M1907 with the long strap that wrapped around the leg.



I am always looking for named items to Central Illinois WWI veterans.

Pre-WW1.....circa 1905-1910 would be my estimation.




Always interested in the 166th Infantry, 42nd Division, A.E.F.

Quality WW1 studio portraits and real photo postcards of Distinguished Service Cross recipients; showing steel helmets; or other interesting content.
