WWI Belgian Mascot – 31st Engineers Doughboy Photo Postcard


 

As I’ve mentioned before, one of my favorite areas of collecting is the mascot photo.  Almost every unit had a mascot; commonly a dog or puppy, or sometimes a woebegone French or Belgian child.  In this case, a young boy poses in a well-tailored uniform as the mascot for the 31st Engineer Regiment.  What a stellar find!
