Lt. Jerome Keith, Observer, AEF, Issoudun, France

Article about: Here is yet another piece from my aviation collection. Terry Morris and Duncan Campbell both feature Lt. Keith's wing in their publications. The letter from Keith is a very interesting read

    Been a while since I posted this, thought some of you might like to see an unusual letter written home by an overseas aviator during the great War so I am bumping it up.

    To the best of my knowledge, most officers of the period served as their own "censor", and this letter is no exception as noted on the lower left corner of the envelope.

    Steve,
    Its such a small world when dealing with the WW1 Aviation material. Attached are pictures of Keith's uniform and wing. Thanks for sharing the letter, very interesting.
