I confess: I do not own this series of ribbons and I’ve found this picture on the Web. But I wanted to share it with you anyway, because it may be useful for the fans of American WW1 uniforms. As the picture was lost on my desktop, I think it’s more safe to keep it on this blog.
Because of B&W phtographs, it’s often hard to identify the ribbons worn by the Doughboys on their uniforms. Thanks to this series (probably done by a French tailor, as the text is in French), you can easily identify the most common models, studying the difference between dark and light shades.
