A viewer of this website was rummaging through a garage sale a few years ago, and came across a very old, pocket-sized bible. Upon opening it, he realized that it was a bible that was probably carried with someone on the battlefields of World War I.
The bible's front cover has the following inscription in gold lettering:
"744th O.S. BATTN. C.E.F."
On the inside front cover, there is some hand-written wording, but in unrecognizable condition. However, there is a date that can be read, and it says "May 21, 1918".
Then on Page 1, there is a clearly legible signature. It reads: "Pte Ware, 14th Batt".
The viewer really feels that this bible belongs to Pte. Ware's family. Any assistance will be appreciated.
