      Veuillez me pardonner une question idiote mais j'essaie de comprendre la géographie et les noms de lieux pour une région où je ne suis jamais allé et dans une langue que je ne parle pas. Dans mes recherches de l'American Ambulance Field Service Section Sanitaire Unis 3, j'ai eu la grande chance d'avoir acquis plusieurs lettres et journaux inédits écrits par certains des hommes qui étaient en Alsace d'avril 1915 à février 1916. Leurs lettres regorgent de noms de villes alsaciennes, grandes et petites ainsi que postées de secours au-dessus de la commune de Krüth. Les nommés affichés sont Mittlach, Hüss ou la ferme à Hüsserin, Trehkopf et KRUT. Krüth et Krut apparaissent tous les deux sur les cartes d'époque mais pas simultanément sur celles que j'ai vues. Ma question pour vous est de savoir s'ils étaient au même endroit ? De nombreux noms de lieux avaient à la fois des noms allemands et français. De plus, les jeunes hommes, en particulier les jeunes hommes américains qui ne connaissent pas les subtilités de la langue, ont peut-être mal prononcé le nom par inadvertance. Je sais que l'hôpital de campagne situé dans une filature de coton à Krüth était une destination fréquente pour les Américains qui évacuaient les postes de la Vallée de la Fecht mais Krüth était-il au même endroit que Krut ? Merci pour votre temps.

      Found this Repro Luger Holster, Grun Canvas, looks kind like the above ones.
    • patches
      What type of Holsters are all these soldiers wearing? Are these in fact Canvas Luger Holsters?  Soldiers are presumably of a Non Establishment Assault Troop Unit in 1918.

      Thanks Sarge...the East Germans certainly did have some unique approaches to uniform accessories and insignia. A great example is the method of shoulder board attachment...
    • The Working  Dead
      Thank you very much! I thought it was British also due to the lances. Next time I lose a needle I'll let you know!
