French Trench Warfare Photo from WWI
This photo of French Trench Warfare was provided by Margaret Jane Swartz Langley and handed down in the family. Talmage Edward Dawson was believed to be in this photo. Jonathan Casey, an expert on military photos at the National WWI Museum, said, "The photo is of early war French
artillery with French artillerymen so I don't see how your grandfather
would be in the photo. We have photos with similar subjects." Still, the photo remains an interesting hand me down from Talmage Edward Dawson.
