WWI Documents

The items shown below are very old documents that I had with me during WWI. They are very old and worn. A lot of them can't really be read, but you can get a good idea of the items we carried with us. These documents were extremely important and valuable to me, and I wanted to save them in order to document my travels during World War I for years to come.

When soldiers were being transported overseas, we were given postcards to send to our families to let them know that our ship had arrived safely.  This is a postcard that I sent home to my parents.  They kept it and I saw it when I was discharged and arrived back home.

Photos #0047-0050 are copies of my pay record book. Soldiers were paid a monthly salary for being in the military.  This book is where I kept track of how much I was paid and what day I was paid.
