Note: This item is currently in storage


Lieutenant Andrew J. LaBoiteaux boarded the RMS Adriatic on October 6, 1918.  During the 12-day crossing, LaBoiteaux took advantage of the meals offered, noting in his scrapbook, “Mess wasn’t so very bad going over.”  LaBoiteaux arrived in England on October 17, 1918, sending a quick postcard to his mother back home in Cincinnati, Ohio.
