CORPORAL LUTHER LEONARD WRAGG, U.S. REMOUNT SERVICE, WW1
This webpage is dedicated to Corporal Luther Leonard Wragg by his grandson Michael Wragg who served at Auxiliary Remount Depot No 333 immediately before being shipped to France in 1918 where he served in the 306th Field Remount Squadron during WW1. My Grandfather told me he was one of the company's buglers

Note: I would like to thank Michel Gilbert who is French but lives in Brussels, Belgium for making the above correction of the Field Remount Squadron No 306 picture that was taken in Germany and not St Nazaire.

Carrol Briner (L) and L.L. Wragg (R) taken in France 1918 NOTE: Notice the 2 overseas chevrons they are wearing at this time and both have on their Victory Ribbons. I have not be able to make out the other ribbon that Luther is wearing. It looks like a 3rd Army shoulder patch that they are wearing
On the back of this picture is says: Wieneke, Schriewer and Stapper
Luther Leonard Wragg (right) and friend in their Barracks Date Unknown, Location Unknown. It looks like Luther's uniform hanging on the wall has a 3rd Army shoulder patch with 2 overseas chevrons.

Luther Leonard Wragg is on the bottom row left. NOTE: Notice 1 overseas chevron and the shoulder patch. Shoulder patch needs ID please let us know if you can help it looks like possibly a 4th Corps patch
Left top row Collie Scott, Randolph Whaley and I believe the man sitting is a friend who was in the 2nd Cavalry
My Grandfather and Friends, (L to R) Carrol Briner (Illinois), George Shoultz (Illinois), Austin Cleveland (Montana), James Prater (Oklahoma), Leonard Wragg (Texas)
Luther Leonard Wragg (second from the left bottom row)and the men in his company. (NOTE) I am guessing this picture was taken in France in front of there quarters. Notice that Luther in the only one wearing a French made overseas cap. Looks like they are wearing the 3rd Army shoulder patch. Looking at the texture of the outside of the building and the stone foundation I am guessing the picture of Luther with his bugle is the same building.
Luther Leonard Wragg and friends at Mess Call Date Unknown. This is a truly great picture which give us the sense of style that Luther and his friends had during the war. I can't thank Mike enough for sharing all of these pictures with us. Every picture I see help me to picture in my mind what it was like for my Grandfather Leonard P Murphy during WW1 in France. Thank you again Mike, Greg Krenzelok
I do have a few more pictures to post
