Greg,
Here is some more information on the 318th.

FIELD REMOUNT SQUADRON NO. 318

Troops.

Field Remount Squadrons No 318 arrived Home from the war at Boston July 5 1919 on the Battle ship Virginia.

To elaborate on the return trip, I have my grandfather’s, Harold E. Carlson, booklet from the U.S.S. VIRGINIA for Transport Trip Number Five. He was with the 318th Field Remount Squadron in Sougy France. The passengers are listed below:

I also have the names and addresses of many of my grandfather’s comrades that they wrote in his pocket notebook, apparently to keep in touch with each other after the war. Attached are scans of his uniform patches, victory medal and a photograph of Harold E. Carlson (right) with an unknown soldier.
