Never know what is stored in an old cabinet
Behold: the forgotten Great War-era colors of the 116th Inf Rgt:
While conducting an inventory of a seldom-used storage compartment at the Virginia War Museum in Newport News, museum worker discovered forgotten World War I Regimental flags for the 111th Field Artillery Regiment and the 116th Infantry Regiments of the 29th Division as well as flags belonging to the 510th and 511th Engineer Service Battalions and the guidon for the 1st Virginia Signal Company.
As noted by the VA Guard: “Both of these units were Virginia National Guard units which had served in France. Also discovered were the flags for the 317th and 318th Infantry Regiments of the 80th Division. The 80th had been a National Army division and these two flags represented the two regiments comprised of draftees from Virginia.”
