    Here's one I picked up recently.

    The Commonwealth troops are obviously in summer mode and I find it interesting to see the hessian covers on their helmets as well as the German wearing some kind of gaiters around his legs instead of the usual boots or puttees.

    It's a generic card from the battle in Flanders 1917. I'm guessing the battle of Messine because of the shorts.

    Not a pc but a phoot, unnamed Welsh major in cuff rank tunic with family. He appears to have a SA pair of medals up along with another medal. The original is super sharp but I have to shrink it to post it here.

    Some of my WW1 period postcards, neither of them are used, but they both came from a relative of mine.

    Nice band photo. Notice the African American which is uncommon in a segregated Army. Band must have been made up from most talented members of bands from different units who played certain instruments. In this case string instruments, banjos, mandolins, guitars and a cello. This is logical seeing no brass instruments.
