World War I

On June 20-21, 1919 a Citizens' Reception was held in Chester to "honor the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Nurses of Chester, PA and vicinity on their return from the World War 1914-1919."

Joe Carpenter, jcarpn@ix.netcom.com, has contributed two pictures of the parade held on this occasion.

The following lists of names are taken from the program book for the reception:

Killed, Died of Disease and Missing, Wounded, Gassed and Prisoners

The Honor Roll: Roster of Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Nurses of Chester and vicinity who served in the Great War.

Note (quoted from the original program book): Despite all efforts to secure a complete list of those in the several branches of the United States service, this roster is not complete.
