Lieutenant Edward Patrick Neary, M.D.

The picture above is from the photograph of Officers, December 1918. He is the only individual in an US Army uniform.

From G. K. Rose, The Story of the 2/4th Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry.

Listed among the officers of the 2/4th Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry at Armistice is Lieutenant E. P. Neary (U.S.), Medical Officer.
