A viewer of this website was rummaging through a garage sale a few years ago, and came across a very old, pocket-sized bible. Upon opening it, he realized that it was a bible that was probably carried with someone on the battlefields of World War I.

The bible's front cover has the following inscription in gold lettering:

"744th O.S. BATTN. C.E.F."

On the inside front cover, there is some hand-written wording, but in unrecognizable condition. However, there is a date that can be read, and it says "May 21, 1918".

Then on Page 1, there is a clearly legible signature. It reads: "Pte Ware, 14th Batt".

The viewer really feels that this bible belongs to Pte. Ware's family. Any assistance will be appreciated.

[Editor] If anyone can provide any information at all, it would be very appreciated if you could contact me at the address below. Thank you.
