    All of the French equipment that I have is connected with Americans that served as volunteer ambulance drivers with either the American Field Service or the Norton-Harjes Formation. These volunteers were required to pay their own way to France and purchase uniforms for themselves. The French government provided helmets, canteens, haversacks, gas masks and food for the volunteers and paid them the same rate as an ordinary private in the French army.

    This is the helmet of a man named Lewis Gilger of SSU (Section Sanitaire Unis) 69.

    More to come later,,but the kids just woke up!
