ARTIFACT:

This is an Extremely Rare World War I American Field Service S.S.U. 14 Service Section, "Friends of France" Armband circa 1917.

SECTION FOURTEEN, a Leland Stanford University section, sailed from New York as a complete unit on the 14th of February, 1917, just after the breaking-off of diplomatic relations with Germany. It went immediately to the front, working in the Verdun sector, then comparatively quiet. On April 15 it moved to the Toul sector, in the region of Commercy. At length it went en repos near Ligny-en-Barrois. On June 5 it journeyed to the Champagne, near Mourmelon-le-Petit, in the Moronvilliers sector, where it remained until recruited into the United States Army, as Section Six-Thirty-Two.

VINTAGE: World War I circa 1917.

SIZE: Approximately 3-7/8" in height x 16" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Wool felt embroidered in cotton/silk threads.

ATTACHMENT: N/A.

MARKINGS: N/A.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a World War I United States Army collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAEEM22 LCCIEX03/29/23

CONDITION: 8 (Excellent-): The armband embroidery shows excellent condition, and the color remains intact, and the rest of the armband wool felt shows quite a few moth-holes, but overall, it is in excellent condition.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
