Red guidon or flag of Battery F, 110 Field Artillery Regiment, ca. 1917. It features a stitched "F", crossed cannons, and "110". The 110th Field Artillery Regiment, Maryland National Guard, was originally established as a Light Artillery Battery in Baltimore, Maryland on December 29, 1915. They expanded in spring 1917 following U.S. entry into World War I. On August 5, the unit formally entered Federal service and joined the 29th Infantry Division for training camp in Camp McClellan in Anniston, Alabama. They did not arrive in France until June 1918 and saw a few weeks of action against the Germans during the Muese-Argonne Offensive to end the war. The 110th went home to Maryland in May 1919. This flag, along with another flag on pole (K.77), and a pair of dog tags, was donated by the widow of Private First Class Charles MacGill James (1897-1982), who joined the 110th on April 9, 1917 and served with the unit through the war.
