Doughboy memorials do exist. I came across a very realistic one in Cooperstown, NY (home of the baseball hall of fame) this past summer.

Jim

Yes they do. In my hometown Morristown NJ there is a very good one. A bas relief of the doughboys marching under the arms of Victory. Underneath the names of all the boys who served. Still not like CW memorials

Jim and John,

Not confident in my ability to post a link, I will suggest that you might Google John Bourne, YouTube, Gallipoli : The Faded Vision, and also his The BEF; The “ Final Verdict”.

This speaker holds attention and delivers in a persuasive manner.

There will be several other offers from YouTube paraded in the sidebars, and they look enticing.

If you feel so inclined, please lend your eyes and ears to these, and make your verdict.

I would love to see what you have to say.

Regards, Phil
