World War I era Yeomen (F)
Participating in New York City Victory Liberty Loan drive May 1919



Though World War I combat operations ended with the Armistice on 11 November 1918, the costs of the war and its greatly expanded military continued. Like the wartime expenses, these were largely funded though savings bond sales. The year 1919 saw an extensive Victory Liberty Loan campaign, and in May of that year Yeomen (F), including a contingent from Washington, D.C., participated in a parade and other war bond activities in New York City. This page features photographs of "Yeomanettes" taking part in that city's Victory Liberty Loan fund drive.
