1st Battalion 22nd Infantry


After Action Reports 1899 Part One


Soldiers of the 22nd Infantry Philippine Islands - The San Francisco Call newspaper had this photo
in their edition of March 23, 1902, in an article about CPT George Detchemendy, who commanded
Company H 22nd Infantry at Baler, with the caption " Part of Company H at Baler".
They are all wearing the model 1883 dark blue pullover campaign shirt with their khaki tropical uniform trousers.
None of the Soldiers are wearing leggings, perhaps a reflection of 1st LT William Wassell's observation
in his report of September 3, (No. 40
D) below. Note mascot or pet in center of Soldiers, front row, sitting.
