This was a young officer who went through the Plattsburgh, NY officer training (the beginning of the 90 day wonder I think) and then shipped out to England. So I know his unit went overseas and eventually to France.

The link in Larmo's post is broken - can you re-post it?
Thanks,
Eric

Help with Abbreviation

A tombstone of an American WWI soldier I am interested in has the following:

Btry C
66 Arty
CAC

Can anyone tell me what the CAC means?
Also, does anyone have a link to where I could find a history of this unit?
Thanks,

I wanted to say that this collector takes the time to talk with total newbies like me - in fact, he drove over to my house to see an item.

A fine fellow with a fine collection.

Engraved EK First Class

I have an EK first class engraved on the back: Gef. O Linz 35 F.A.R. At first I thought it was Lanz but got my loupe out to discover my mistake. It is hand engraved quite obviously, but professionally. In the useful site link thread I tried to find somewhere I could search for the records of this so...

Just recently I saw somewhere the name of the ONE GUY in the universe who does great Luger holster repairs but now I can't find it.
