Today’s post comes from my growing collection of 78th Division portrait photos. Although we don’t know his specific unit designation, we do have his name and company. Taken in a French studio, Alex Lindell was posed in a manner which allows the viewer to see his maimed hand. The fact that he was wounded is evidenced by a visible wound chevron on his right hand sleeve. The stitching is barely visible.

Hi. I have a cousin (Blanchard Aldridge) whose gravestone notes that he served in 78 DIV PROV OP MG TNG CTR. Would supply soldiers like him have gone to the France with the division? Thank you.
I can help track down some info for you. Was he from North Carolina by chance?
