Subject: ID'g of Those Wear'g US Signal Insignia
By Jove! I think you've ID'd the top three in the 1815 F St. signal hd. qtrs. image. Most mistake Ashley as being CSO Benjamin Fisher. Do you suppose Fisher is the one sstanding in the doorway of this image? I don't have an enlargement of this person.|
I had difficulty choosing between Clum and Joe Spencer (see Brown: opposite page 80) as the upper most person in this image but I think I'd have to tip in favour of your assessment.
What about the two insignia'd privates standing just down from Ashley and White. Might they be matched up with the images on page 80 of Brown's signal history too, ya think?
One of the neat things about our group is that we can take great delight in re-discovering the history through documents, drawings, photographs or by emulating the actual mechanics of our early communication pioneers. I truely believe (at least in our case) that a close alliance of history researchers and living histoians can be so beneficial to both groups.
