31st Regiment and Siberia

Postby Niner Alpha » Thu Mar 14, 2019 10:17 am

I saw this offering on ebay of a Regiment organization day pamphlet from 1935. One of the historical notes was about the Siberian expedition when the Regiment was only about 3 years old. It landed in the Siberian AO from the China side on August 21, 1918. It's first casualty was eight days later. The Regiment returned to the Philippines April of 1920. Casualties were one officer and 29 enlisted men killed. The wounded were estimated at about 60. However an unstated but large number of men lost limbs due to frost bite.

When this site gets fixed.....if it ever does... I'm going to post more about this and one other pamphlet I got some information from.
