The jacket has a bullion and wool III Corps shoulder patch above a discharge chevron and two overseas stripes. The right sleeve displays the chevron of a Master Signals Electrician of the Army Air Service. The collar features "U.S." and winged propeller Air Service collar disks. A Victory Medal ribbon with one star is above the left pocket. The wool breeches have several holes in the front, while the jacket has one small hole, about the size of a pencil eraser, on the upper right chest, a few smaller holes beneath that, and a narrow hole about 1 inch wide on the lower rear of the jacket. The name of "A.G. Coe" is written inside of the jacket and the initials "AGC" are written inside of the wool overseas cap.
