Signal Corps camera team

U.S. Army Signal Corps photographers and cameramen were very active on the Western Front. We’ve all seen many examples of their works – the photographs all have the ‘crossed flags’ logo and a file number in the lower left hand corner. Now the National Archives and Records Administration has completed the digitization of ALL of the U.S. Army Signal Corps films from World War One that they’ve got.
