1 UNIDENTIFIED AVIATION SECTION SIGNAL CORPSMAN 1917 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT WWI DIARY FROM JEFFERSON BARRACKS TO THE USS MONGOLIA AND ON TO FRANCE
1917 Hard Cover Good+ Manuscript 
On offer is a very unique diary from World War I, that begins on Dec.15,1917 until Aug 1, 1919. The Corpsman that kept this diary is unidentified but he enlisted in the Aviation Section Signal Corp and was assigned to the 15th Co. In total approximately 40 pages of writing on twenty leaves. Many interesting things happened to this soldier and he writes about leaving the U.S.A. on June 30th with a "convoy of 8 ships, sub chasers and Dirigable follows us". He mentions the ships SS Henderson, USS Mongolia, Von Stuben, Cruiser Fredrick and others: On July 4th, "Cruiser Frederick fired 21 gun salute and all ships broke out colors. At noon Colonel of the Engrs. spoke...", "Drew a 10 day restriction thanks to Lieutenant Mary-Ellen.", "SS Henderson on fire. Von Stuben standing by..", "Elmer Fisher of California was killed by accident.", "Fiat Accident. Pat Warden killed. attempted to fly plane without permission.", "Mixed it with a frog and broke my hand.", four days later; "made a Sergeant." then a couple of days later; "Restricted for 3 weeks for missing drill.", "Another fete day for the frogs." My favorite: "Still at Le Mans. Have been decootiezed and are awaiting orders." Talks about many French towns. The diary is in good condition but someone has removed a few pages [July 9th to July 20th]. The rear cover has some trauma and something glued it. Mentions the names of several guys that were killed on "liberty". Has a postcard glued on the front and the last few pages have peoples names and addresses.
