    Real Photo Postcard (RPPC) of a child wearing a miniature WW1 uniform that has the unusual addition of a 78th Division patch on the shoulder.

    I was surprised when this one arrived-- it is a French postcard. I was expecting it to be a stateside view.

    Additionally, the back has an ID of "Paul Berger".

    Could be a case of a post war tour by a Veteran with his family or a Widow with her son (Speculation right now).

    At some point, I will research 78th Division casualties and see if this can be tied to a particular soldier.

      Absolutely great image!

      Looks like wound and overseas stripes on his little uniform. Too bad there is a shadow over the collar or we might have seen dad's collar disks too.

      Thanks chris-- I appreciate it.

      I have seen many children in uniforms images, these highly detailed/ patched uniforms are few and far between.

      I hope to crack the story on this one some day!
