This is an original 1920 World War I sepia Rotogravure of one of the final images seen by U. S. Signal Corps photographer Lieutenant Ralph Estep, which shows a patrol of the 42nd Division advancing toward enemy trenches near Sedan. The second image shows Company A, 3rd Battalion, 166th Infantry, 42nd Division at Champigneulles on their way to the front lines. The final image was the very last image Lieutenant Estep saw before his death, which was caused by a shell bursting directly in front of him.
