WWI Uniforms and Groupings
U-1307  Fantastic 6TH Regiment Headquarters Grouping. Great painted helmet with full chinstrap. No liner. Amazing painted Gas Mask that was shown in the reference "Equipping the Corps".

U-1304  Amazing Distinguished Service Cross recipients uniform, medals and photo grouping.

The medal grouping consists of his numbered DSC with jeweler engraved initials and overseas dates. His 1st year issue Purple Heart is Government engraved and numbered. His Croix de Guerre and Victory Medal are also present. Really a wonderful set. His citation is as follows. "

The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to John J. Zeldam, Private, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action north of Cierges, France, August 1, 1918. Following an assault, in which he was wounded in the leg by a machine-gun bullet, and when further advance was impossible because of a barrage, Private Zeldam took refuge in a shell hole. From this shelter he observed a comrade who was seriously wounded and needed assistance. Despite heavy artillery and machine-gun fire, he crawled 20 yards through the open, reached the helpless man, and took him back to the shell hole. After the two had lain in the shell hole nearly the entire day, Private Zeldam, leaving his canteen with his companion, crawled across the danger zone and obtained assistance to carry the other wounded man to a dressing station.
