Tom-

Absolutely FANTASTIC find! I am in awe of this collection. It is truly worthy of the finest museums. The level of detail you put in your description without a doubt shows your passion for this little known & lesser studied topic of WWI. Have there been many books done on the subject? If not, you have a solid foundation on which to launch another (?) book project.

WANTED!

WWI Aero Squadron items such as insignia, uniforms & my favorite- PHOTOS! Will purchase or work out a possible trade

HIGHLY SOUGHT- Anything related to the AEF Photo Sections or 85th,258th & 278th Aero Squadrons.

To be alone, to have your life in your own hands, to use your own skill, single-handed, against the enemy. It was like the lists of the Middle Ages, the only sphere in modern warfare where a man saw his adversary and faced him in mortal combat, the only sphere where there was still chivalry and honour. If you won, it was your own bravery and skill; if you lost, it was because you had met a better man

Thanks for much for the kind words Chuck, it means alot. It has been a privledge to be alble to share some of the many artifacts and photos of Waldo's group. As far as another book? I have to finish the one I'm working on first. ;) (Which I hope maybe sometime next year once the artwork and maps are completed. :thumbsup: )

 

Here are a few more images from the Peirce group.

 

A close-up of Arthur G. Carey; note he is wearing the silver insignia of a Sous-Chef (assistant cheif) in the American Field Service. My guess is this was taken in 1917 in Paris after Carey returned from serving in Macedonia with Section Three. Notice the look in his eyes. He had seen service with the AFS since December 1914. He had served in Alsace, Verdun and on the Solanika Fronts. At the time this photo was taken he was only 25 years old.

He joined the U.S. Army soon after and saw combat as an artillery officer.

The funeral of Richard Hall, first American Field Service volunteer to be killed in World War One. December, 1915 Moosch, valley of Saint-Amarin in Alsace, France.

 

http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/ind...c=32738&hl=

 

"All this time, as in all the past months, Richard Nelville Hall drove his car up the winding, shell-swept artery of the mountain at war — past crazed mules, broken-down artillery carts, swearing drivers, stricken horses, wounded stragglers still able to hobble — past long convoys of Boche prisoners, silent, descending in twos, guarded by a handful of men — past all the personnel of war, great and small (for there is but one road, one road on which to travel, one road for the enemy to shell), past abris, bomb-proofs, subterranean huts, to arrive at the paste de secours, where silent men moved mysteriously in the mist under the great trees, where the cars were loaded with an ever-ready supply of still more quiet figures (though some made sounds), mere bundles in blankets. Hall saw to it that those quiet bundles were carefully and rapidly installed — right side up, for instance — for it is dark and the brancardiers are dulled, deadened by the dead they carry; then rolled down into the valley below, where little towns bear stolidly their daily burden of shells wantonly thrown from somewhere in Bocheland over the mountain to anywhere in France

 

— the bleeding bodies in the car a mere corpuscle in the full crimson stream, the ever-rolling tide from the trenches to the hospitals of the blood of life and the blood of death. Once there, his wounded unloaded, Dick Hall filled his gasoline tank and rolled again on his way. Two of his comrades had been wounded the day before, but Dick Hall never faltered. He slept where and when he could, in his car, at the poste, on the floor of our temporary kitchen at Moosch — dry blankets — wet blankets

— blankets of mud — blankets of blood; contagion was pedantry — microbes a myth.

 

At midnight Christmas Eve, 1915, he left the valley to get his load of wounded for the last time. Alone, ahead of him two hours of lonely driving up the mountain. Perhaps he was thinking of other Christmas Eves, perhaps of his distant home, and of those who were thinking of him. . . . The next American to pass, found him by the roadside halfway up the mountain. His face was calm and his hands still in position to grasp the wheel. A shell had struck his car and killed him instantly, painlessly. A chance shell in a thousand had struck him at his post, in the morning of his youth.

 

Up on the mountain fog was hanging over Hartmanns Christmas morning, as if Heaven wished certain things obscured. The trees were sodden with dripping rain. Weather, sight, sound, and smell did their all to sicken mankind, when news was brought to us that Dick Hall had fallen on the Field of Honor. No man said, "Merry Christmas," that day. No man could have mouthed it. With the fog forever closing in, with the mountain shaken by a double bombardment as never before, we sat all day in the little log hut by the stove, thinking first of Dick Hall, then of Louis Hall, his brother, down in the valley.

 

Dick Hall, we who knew you, worked with you, played with you, ate with you, slept with you, we who took pleasure in your company, in your modesty, in your gentle manners, in your devotion and in your youth — we still pass that spot, and we salute. Our breath comes quicker, our eyes grow dimmer, we grip the wheel a little tighter — we pass — better and stronger men."

 

Waldo Peirce

A closer look at the German souvenir belt buckles Waldo brought back. There are some uncommon examples of Bavarian, Prussian and Wurttemberg buckles. The grey cannister was the container for Waldo's French issue gas mask, complete with his name scratched onto the side. Not to get off topic but this canister is a little larger than others I've seen. I think it might have come with an early version of the M2 gas mask but I'm not sure.

The other signs; The top one says "zum Lowenpfad" which roughly translates as "To the Lion's Path",,possibly the name of a trench?

The second one looks to be a direction sign showing the way to an aid station, helpful I'm sure in the maze of trenches.

The third was a puzzle at first. It reads "Clorkalk" which after some research I discovered that clorkalk was a chloride of lime paste used in the early 20th century to sterilize bandages and medical instruments. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calciumhypochlorit http://www.wasser-wissen.de/abwasserlexikon/c/chlorkalk.htm

Pretty cool huh? ;)
