How Granddad Spent the War: My paternal grandfather spent WWI as an officer at a camp in Virginia training troops. He was in an Engineering Corps unit and part of the program was training new engineers to dig and maintain trenches. This was shot with a Kodak Vest Pocket Autographic on 127 size roll film. I have the negs he processed (this roll is heavily reticulated) and a few prints along with the camera and a few accessories.
