June 29, 1919, Americans Who Saw Active Service In British Army during WWI parade on 14th St upon returning home on the SS Orduna. Photograph, #mrc_054, is from the NY City Archives, identifies the men as Americans who joined the British Army before the US entered the war.

Photograph, #mrc_112, shows the men marching East on 14th St from the under the Ninth Ave El station to the Armory on 14th St.

I was suprised to see a group of the men in kilts. I guess that these men went to Scotland to join the British Army there, so that they could serve with their clansmen.
