U.S. Army Uniforms of World War One

A.E.F. Knit Uniform Accessories (Fleisher's Catalog, 1918)

Photographs from the W.W. I era Fleisher's Knitting & Crochet Manual that depicted the variety of Quartermaster approved scarves, wristlets, "helmets", sweaters and watch caps that were available to the Doughboys for service "Over There". In some cases the knitting instructions are intact.

Some might be amused to see that the photographer's stylist had used the 1902 blouse rather than the more suitable 1912 issue.

From Amazon: Fleisher's Knitting & Crochet Manual


The Fifth Avenue Soldier (Advertisement, 1918)

The haberdashers of the Franklin Simon Company of Fifth Avenue, New York City, simply must not have been reading the many news reports regarding the horrors of industrial warfare. Indeed, their concept of coping with such carnage involved offering such sale items as silk handkerchiefs, cashmere socks and a dashing bathrobe for tooling around the barracks.

American Officer's Musette Bag (Advertisement, 1917)

The attached magazine illustration is from an ad for a commercially produced musette bag for American officers during World War One.

American Army officers, like the men in their ranks, had no particular need to ever bother with a musette (we have learned that a "musette" is a small French wind instrument, not unlike a bag-pipe). The bag pictured here was intended for personal effects that would be needed while on the march: stationery,toiletries, housewives).

Due to the French prowess involving all matters military during the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries, the English language is lousey with French military terms, many of which are very much in use today.


A Fourth Overseas Chevron for Some (The Stars and Stripes, 1919)

A short news item named the three American officers who served "over there" long enough to be granted the adornment of a fourth overseas chevron. Each gold wire chevron, worn on the lower left cuff, represented a single six month period served in theater; the vast majority of A.E.F. uniforms had anywhere between one and three sewn in place.

The Red Chevrons (The Stars and Stripes, 1919)

Two paragraphs from THE STARS AND STRIPES explained the legal status extended to all those demobilized Doughboys who wore the highly coveted discharge chevron. The red wool chevron was worn (point down) on the left arm.


Army Rank Insignia (Privately Printed, 1917)

A color illustration of the U.S. Army rank insignia worn by the American Army of World War I. Insignia noted are officer's bronzed collar and shoulder devices as well as the sleeve chevrons and enlisted-men specialty badges. Excluded are enlisted men's collar and cap devices. Please bare in mind that this insignia chart was not produced by the army but by civilians; we could only correct the errors that we were able to recognize.
