I think I did OK at the recent postcard show.

 

Pretty sure he's 371st Infantry but not quite sure if its a red hand patch or not:

These three 361st Infantry men had their photo taken in Nogent-Le-Rotrou after the armistice. I think that the guy on the left is wearing one of the USS (Scouts) collar discs.

I thought I had posted this one before, but apparently I did not. This is a second studio portrait of Lt. Ernest L. Sutton of Suffolk Va. This one he is wearing his cover. The first photo is on post #375 on page #15.

 

29th Div. 116th Infantry.

Here is the earlier previously posted photo without the cover.

By the end of 1918, the majority of the regular US army infantry regiments had been sent to the A.E.F. The 2nd Infantry Regiment, after serving in heavy combat in every US conflict including several recent tours in the Philippines, was posted to Fort Shafter, Hawaiian Territory in 1913. At that time they were the only infantry regiment in the Hawaiian Territory in the pre-Hawaiian Department/Division army. By 1915 they were guarding the interned belligerent ships and crews of the European powers in Honolulu harbor. These 2nd Infantry photos were taken in 1915 and developed by the post studio at Fort Shafter.

I thought that these two images would be of interest.

 

Both were taken in Dublin in 1919. My best guess is that they were taken of soldier in a hospital due to the visible cane and mix of ranks and Divisions. I see soldiers, a LT and CPT. Also the shoulder sleeve insignia of both the 82nd and 33rd Divisions are present.

 

I believe that the old guy is a local civilian coaxed into the photo (probably with booze) so his jacket and hat could be used!

Some great images here! Austin: That African American with French equipment and rifle is a top-shelf historical document! Brennan: Just another day scoring BAR images, eh? Scott: hat's off for some of the wildest poses! And Salvage, those 2nd Infantry guys must have really made the local photographer rich!

 

Here is one of my latest, but I am coming up empty on the research. The inscription on the back looks like "Dag McFarlane" but I must be barking up the wrong tree. I can't find a Marine officer with that name.

John, Dan McFarland commissioned from Gy Sgt in 1918, went over with Co I 13th Marines.

 

Here's one that has been a puzzle for me (in fact I just listed it on ebay because I spent too much time trying to find him). A young New Yorker in the Rainbow Division.

What a crazy coincidence...just this past weekend I had read that biography of Hutchinson on the hunch that a photo I had just scanned might be that of the General.

 

The photo was taken, post-war, in Hawaii. The only info on it is the handwritten, "Field Artillery C.O." Since Hutchinson took command of the 11 Field Artillery Brigade of the Hawaiian Division in 1922, I was trying to determine if this is a photo of him (not a studio portrait, but shared here just for comparison).

Great portrait! I will do some searching around to see if I can help with a solid ID. I like these kinds of mysteries!

That research hound, AustinO, saw past my roadblock and identified the Marine Lt. as Dan McFarland, 13th Marines, Co. I.

 

Between you, him, and AZNation, the research ability on the forum is unsurpassed!

Another recent studio shot that has been impossible to ID. A 9th Infantry officer and his brother, who must have been in one of the Machine Gun Battalions of the 82nd - his collar is just a bit too dark to read a number, but you can see the MG patch on his sleeve under the 82nd. Photo came from the SC/GA border and I couldn't find a pair of brothers/relatives in either states records that fit the bill. A shame!

Here's an interesting one from the North Carolina State Library. Surfman Prochorus L. O’Neal of Rodanthe, N.C., sometime after the August 1918 SS Mirlo rescue. Like most ex-US Lifesaving Service personnel, his uniform is a mix of old and new. He was stationed at the Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station.

My Great Uncle and Aunt. He was in N. Russian, wounded, sent to hospital in France and met her. IIRC, married in France, returned home( N.C.) in 1924? Knew them as a kid and always wanted to see all he brought home. 1911, uniforms, helmets and lots of other goodies. Sadly they both passed away late 60s, their only son got everything, turned out to be a drunk and sold it all cheap.post-6975-0-62601300-1557245044.jpeg

"This remarkable photo from circa 1918 depicts American Soldiers paying tribute to the millions of horses, donkeys and mules that were killed during WW1. In addition to the thousands of soldiers who were killed during the first great war, over 8 million horses, donkeys and mules were brutally slaughtered in battle.In this photograph, American soldiers pay tribute to the animals who helped them win the war. They have joined together to form a horse's head and this moving photograph commemorates the forgotten animals who gave their lives to the nation. The touching black and white photo is believed to have been taken by officers of the Auxiliary Remount Dept. No.326 in Camp Cody, New Mexico."
