Research Query: Clermont-Ferrand, France WWI

I would like some research assistance please. During the late summer of early fall of 1918 the 303rd Field Artillery Regiment of the American Expeditionary Force trained near Clermont-Ferrand, France. I am interested in a description of the Jewish community of Clermont at that time. Specifically, I would like to find out, if possible, the relationship between members of the Jewish community and Jewish members of the AEF.  I have letters which describe an American doctor spending the High Holidays and other times with a "wealthy couple" from Clermont.

Connecticut Catholic in Wartime Washington, 1917

One hundred years ago, American entry into the First World War transformed the nation’s capital from a sleepy crossroads of Southern gentility into a modern hub of administration commensurate to an emerging first class world power. It was here a young Catholic soldier wrote his family, primarily his mother and sisters, back in their hometown of Southington, Connecticut.

The pigeons of Passchendaele – and why animals still suffer and die in modern conflicts

Dear all,

Forgive the naked self-publicty, but with the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Passchendaele offensive due next month, I thought subscribers might be interested in this short piece and perhaps, more broadly, we might consider the place of animals in modern warfare?
