Lot of ten (10) Marconi telegraph forms containg diary entries from one of the first U.S. military convoys to France in June 1917. While the writer is unknown, he mention three ships in the covoy, the Allen (U.S.S. Allen DD-16, a destroyer) the Mognolia (a private troop carrier, later in 1918 bought by the Navy) and Cyclops (U.S.S. Cyclops AC-4 a collier famous for being lost in the Bermuda Triangle in 1918 with all hands.) The writings are from June 11, 1917 ending July 4, 1917. Fine condition. The United States declared war on Germany on April 6, 1917, more than two and a half years after World War I started. A ceasefire and Armistice was declared on November 11, 1918. Before entering the war, the U.S. had remained neutral, though it had been an important supplier to Great Britain and the other Allied powers.
