Harlem Hellfighters In Action

Harlem Hellfighters in action. Here, the men of the 369th are depicted wearing the American Brodie helmet; however, after being detached and seconded to the French, they wore the Adrian helmet, while retaining the rest of their American uniform. This particular image displays the action at S├ęchault, France on September 29, 1918 during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. They would have worn the American Brodie helmet at this time.

When looking at the details from the two links above it would not be unreasonable to conclude that one or the other have their details wrong. Wikimedia claim The Steerage by Alfred Stieglitz is in the Public Domain, if the photograph is in the Public Domain then George Eastman House are mistakenly or falsely claiming copyright when they have no right to do so.
