American Field Service Bulletin No 3 July 18, 1917.
The following men arrived back from Salonique from Section 10, on July 11th - Philip Rhinelander, Robert Wood, Gordon Mackenzie, Wells Robinson, James Harle, Harry Batchelor, George Le Bon, and Hamilton Lillie. This leaves fourteen men of Section 10 still there, but they are expected to sail about the twentieth of the month (as it was impossible at the time to let them all leave at once).
During the nine months of work which the section saw James Harle of Knoxville, Tenn., Frank Fitzsimmons of New-York, Kimberly Stuart of Saginaw, Mich., John Ellinston of California, and W. D. Swan of Boston received the Croix de Guerre for bravery and distinguished conduct. John Ellinston was signaled out for the special distinction of the Palm.
Fifty chassis and three cases of spare parts intended for the American Field Service went down when the S. S. Orleans was sunk last week. This was an unfortunate to say the occurrence least, but not necessarily a fatal one as there are a number of chassis at the Parc and the rue Raynouard waiting for their turn to be turned into ambulances.
Section no 30 left the rue Raynouard for the front on July 16 under the leadership of M. R. S. Richmond. The rest of the section was composed of Adams C. W., Anthony E. A., Beebe J. O., Bingham W. J., Bourdon O. H., Buel R. W., Clinch N. B., Curry R. H., Dadmun H. H., Davis H. H., Emmons, G. G., Freening A. B., Gaston, K. S., Goodspeed H., Harris G de L., Hutchinson J. D., La Motte L. H., McDougal R. D., Manning E. A., Shepard H. W., Squibb P., Stuart J. F. E., Wendell F. T., Wiswall H. C., Wooldredge J. The whole of the section was given a short time ago by Mr. William Mitchell of the New-York Cotton Exchange. The following men arrived last week on the S. S. Touraine; and signed up with the American Field Service; Anspach, Ralph; Armstrong; Roger Newton; Broughton, Daniel Carl; Barry, Carl Jr.; Barnett, William l'Engle; Baker, John Adams; Brown, William Edward; Brown, McClary Hazelton; Brown, James Snodgrass; Brickley, Arthur Joseph;
