*New* WWI Yankee Division Portrait Photos – 101st Field Artillery and 101st Engineers


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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    • Robert,

      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?
