WWI Identified RPPC – 90th Division Veteran Victor H. Horner Poses in Germany 1919


Nothing spectacular jumped out at me when I first purchased this image on eBay last week.  I knew it was likely identified, but I wasn’t sure the name would be searchable. I was pleasantly surprised when the photo arrived and I was able to read the name and successfully search for his name on ancestry.com.  He was born in 1895 and passed away in 1978 in Springfield, CO. This photo was likely taken in 1919 after the Armistice.  Note the use of French numeric pins on his overseas cap.
