Historical WWI photographs

Because Section 625 was attached to the French Army, there were no restrictions on taking and having photographs, unlike the U.S. forces, where strict censorship prohibited the troops from taking pictures for private use.

Somewhere in France, Spring, 1918, Ambulances of Section 625, U.S.A.A.C. cross a field en route to pick up wounded soldiers.

Stretcher bearers carrying a wounded soldier to one of the Sec. 625 ambulances.

Interior of a Church, being prepared to be transformed into a field hospital.

Churches, being some of the largest buildings in any area, were often utilized as hospitals and Military Headquarters buildings.
