This comes from my Dad\'s personal WW2 Collection. He was an Army Vet who served in the 79th Lorraine Division during D-Day. He collected many items from his own time in France & Germany, but he also collected many other WWII memorabilia that he, and then I saved for over 70 years.

This is THE FIRST of one of the Rarest WWI Collections in his COLLECTION!

Everything inthis collection is kept in an old suitcase belonging to:

ARTHUR B. FARRAR

Batt A

101st FA

USNG 133299

I love history and this has been so interesting going over Mr. Farrar\'s many Letters, Pictures, Maps, Dog Tags, Gas Mask, Bible, Mirror, Helmet, a box of Fanny Farmer Candies!

This is his DOG TAG that comes in this collection...we put it in an acid free display case.

Arthur was a great man!From allthese letters he wrote to his Mom, we learned about his time in the U.S. Army and what it was like to be & fight in the Great War! He came from Massachusetts, crossed the Atlantic on the S.S.ADRIATIC...

He did a lot ofwork with Horses in France, he wrote about the battles hefought in Belgium & France, his Christmases & injury he suffered...and so much more!

The Group in this collection includes his actual HELMET, WWI \"Armistice\" NEWSPAPER, a DOG TAG, a Postcard he wrote from the SS. ADRIATIC & of course, an original PHOTO postcard of Arthur wearing his Helmet.

He wrote this to his Ma on Mar 15, 1918 and numbered it \"No 5\"

Arthur wrote many letters to his mother at home in Massachusetts, but he wrote a copy of his letters in 2 thick journals because he explains that his letters take so long to reach home. He even numbered the letters and refers to this problem so he could keep track of what he wrote to her last.

These first 2Lettersare dated Sept 11, 1917 and Sept 27, 1917and Arthur writes about crossing the ocean on the S.S. Adriatic...

He arrived in Halifaxon the ship protected by Battleships and \"the British have certainly got the \"Subs\" under control\"...he then crossed the English Channel (censored)where they joined up with the \"fine French troops on a train with 40 in one car, dealing in French money.\"

He also asks his Mom to send him a \"Soldiers French Book\" and tells her he has the Army sending her money from his pay every month! But, she will have to pay postage since they can\'t buy stamps.

This is Arthur Farrar\'s HELMET

He was injured and hospitalized in the war, but I don\'t know if this dentwas from shrapnel or a kick from his horses!

The leather strap and linerare still intact...
