WWI 28th Division Painted Helmet - ID'd


Recommended Posts

I was at an estate sale today and I picked up this WWI 28th helmet.

It is ID'd to Pvt. Howard Jackson.

I also got the uniform to go with it.

I traced the estate owner Edwin W. Jackson back to his Father who was Pvt. Howard Jackson.

Last photo.

 

I got this from the 28th 5 volume set.

Unfortunately he must have been absent on picture day as he was not in the individual photos.

BTW, I got this book set from the vet's son.

Thank you for the kind comments.

Sure Mike.

Here is the German helmet and the canteen I also got from the vet's son.

The canteen is unit marked but doesnt quite jive with the vet's service.

I assume he picked it up from someone else because the vet's son told me for sure that his father brought it home from the war with him.
