Secondly Recruits with their mattresses tied to them to serve as life preservers.
These would be warm, for a short while, but would leave you floating either on your back or front.

Photo taken at Newport Naval Training Station, Rhode Island. April 1917.

Soldier in black and white uniform to conceal him while climbing trees.

He stands in front of a house camouflaged to represent a fence and trees. Co. F, 24th Engnrs. American University, D. C. November 14, 1917. Army Engineer Corps.

Why on earth did they think black and white stripes would conceal someone climbing a tree??
