"Doughboy" Uniform?

Recommended Posts

Im trying to identify a uniform I bought for $30 at a gun show. Seller had no information about it other than it came from an estate sale.


The uniform looks like an 1912 pattern cotton khaki summer tunic and breeches, however, the buttons do not appear to be military, and have "BCS" (I think) on them. Also, I have no idea what the blue "E" patch on the left sleeve is. Is this possibly a uniform from a military school, or maybe ROTC? Thanks for looking

I think your on the right track.Looks like a Military school/ROTC set to me.


Baylor State College? Just a guess

Boston School Cadet

Yup, for English High School in Boston. There should be another matching patch on the other sleeve and "EHS" tabs on the collar. I have an example from the same high school.

Interested in uniforms / groupings from Massachusetts and New England veterans

(particularly 26th "Yankee" Division), and original propaganda leaflets from WWI and WWII.
