One speculative guess is a pack worn initially by a soldier in the 31st Division's 116th Field Artillery Regiment, who later is assigned to the 27th Division's 104th Field Artillery Regiment, the 31st Division's people were used as replacement for other divisions starting in October 1918.

 

Looks like a L under the crossed cannons, L Battery?

Now that linedoggie pointed my major screw up,, lets start again :lol: It However, if it is for the 116th Field Artillery Battalion, strange it would be found n France, the 116th FA Bn was again the 31st Inf Div, it was a broken up regiment, one of the units formed from it was the 116th FA Bn, and remained with the division, and as we know that division was in the Pacific, ditto if it was for the 104th FA Bn, that too was from a broken up regiment,, with the 104th FA Bn in the 27th Inf Div........so, I'm stumped, unless the 116 stands for the 116th Antiaircraft Battalion and the 104 is a roster or unit property number, don't know about the L there then, seems to be more markings along with it???,

 

The 16th AAA Bn was a unit that was in the ETO, but then these units were stll under the Coast Artillery and wore their branch of service, but in a lot of cases on dress uniforms forwards the end of the war and after they wore the standard crossed cannons

Could be he served pre-war in one of the units or transferred over state-side.
