WWI 29th Overcoat

New World War One Enlisted Overcoat

This World War One enlisted Man’s Overcoat was recently Donated to the 116th Foundation for use in our programs.

The Overcoat belonged to a member of the 29th Division who may have been from Roanoke, VA. He has sewn a hand made Division patch on the left shoulder made from French uniform material. The gold colored chevron on the lower left sleeve indicates 6 months of overseas service, a combat theater veteran.

The overcoat is in excellent condition with only a very few small moth holes and= very little wear to the wool and linen materials.

This item was donated by a retired Army service member who had trained with the 29th Division and felt our organization would be the best place to preserve it.
