These four troopers struck an interesting pose in this Real Photo Postcard (RPPC).

Three decided to pose with their ponchos on, while the fourth wars a heavy overcoat.

The Sergeant in the front and his buddy are both holding 1911 Colt pistols.

While this may be WW1 era, it looks to me like a 1916 Mexican Border era image.

The RPPC has been mounted onto an album page, so the back and any information has been lost.

Reproduction of this image in any form is prohibited.
