An Id’d lot including a rare unit flag/ marker.
This lot belonged to Donald Gray, Co “K,” 363rd Infantry, 91st Division, AEF. A base lot of material, yet contains a very scarce unit flag marker for the Regiment.
The marker, probably made in France, is constructed of cotton, with applied white cotton panel with regimental numbers. Once a dark blue, now faded, the marker has a center loop for slipping on to a guidon or other type pole, with upper and lower cotton ties. There is a tear in the lower right corner that is about 6 inches in length; repairable, but not needed.
Also included is a hard to find British trench mirror with paper instruction on the inside of the lid with Gray’s name written on. The paint is largely intact and a nice example. The 91st unit history and a brief history for Company K is here as well, both identified to Gray.
His overseas cap has numbered disk. An 8×10 glossy of honor guard of the 363rd Infantry, Red Cross ditty bag- ID’d to Gray, and more.
The Sonoma County Historical Society Journal has an article on Gray (see photo).
