This is a 1919 "yardlong" photograph of HQ Company of the 9th Infantry Regiment. It was a recent acquisition.

This occupation photograph was taken in the city of Bendorf, Germany.

The regiment earned SIX Battle Streamers during WW1 fighting in the 2nd Infantry Division "Indianhead".

The distinctive patches can be seen on many of the soldiers pictured.

Additionally, two members can be seen wearing their Distinguished Service Crosses (DSC).

Be sure to look at Toracat's posting of some of his Manchu items-- thanks for your service!

    Now that's a very cool picture!

    Almost looks like the guys on the left in the 3rd picture are wearing German leather cartridge belts, but it's probably just a darker material than the usual khaki belts.

    Thanks Doc-- they are just darker and look to be US on close inspection.

    Hey Scott ... what's the height of the image?
  10. scottvez scottvez, 2 years ago
    The image itself is about 8", with frame about 10 1/2". And the frame is a little over a yard long!

    It's definitely one of the best panoramic military images I've seen. More than likely the image was shot with a Cirkut No.8 camera. The camera rotated on a tripod head and the roll-film moved past a slit style shutter. It was quite a mechanical marvel.

    Thanks for the information.

    I got two of these 9th Infantry yardlongs. I will try and post the other later this week. It is the same size.
