ID Tags
The Army issued identification tags (“dog tags”) to all solders during World War I, like these carried by Louis Guildner. Design varied, with the circular ones here the most common but they also appeared with scalloped edges or square. If the soldier were to die in battle, one tag would stay with the soldier and the other forwarded to headquarters for recording and identification.
