A nice selection of Yankee Division portrait photos to add to my growing collection! An incredible set of three photos of a 101st Field Artillery doughboy wearing his helmet with painted unit insignia as well as his town medals and victory ribbon with multiple clasps. Also included is a shot of an engineer officer with the division.

Look at the Doughboy with his helmet at a jaunty angle. Those things are heavy!
thanks for a touching post.
My grandfather was in the 101st field artillery, one of the brockton boys named Anderson. He suffered from gas poisoning that ate holes in his lungs.
I am relatively certain my Grand Uncle, whom I was named after, served in the 101st Field Artillery. He was exposed to gas late in the war. Taken to a field hospital he was recovering when he contracted influenza. He died December 7, 1918 and is buried in France.
I found a record for a Robert English who was in the 102nd Field Artillery, BATTERY A. He was from Sharon, MA. His mother (your great grandmother) was a Mrs. Fannie English. She actually made the trip over to see his grave in 1930.
Does this match your family records?
