Today we will begin looking at some forgotten old soldier photos. Veterans Day is next week..but it used to be called Armistice Day and it was November 11, 1918 that The Great War ended.
World War I or The Great War (that is what the old people used to call it) began in 1914. The United States declared war on Germany on April 6, 1917. Many of the WW I photos of American soldiers are from 1917 and 1918.
This is a Real Photo Postcard of a WWI soldier. It is an Azo postcard with triangles pointing up. They were made from 1904 to 1918..so this one fits in perfectly for our 1917 to 1918 dates.
I am not an expert with Uniforms or Wars..so if anyone has anything to add please leave me a comment and I will add the info to the original post.
I find it very sad that these soldiers photos have been forgotten.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
