A large document, 16 by 20 1/2 inches, attesting to the service of Captain William P. Wattles in the First Telegraph Battalion of the AEF. The document indicates that Wattles was a member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Battalion Veterans group and the document is dated April 24, 1919. The chapter designation as well as the date was written on the document in pencil and so it is quite light, but still completely legible. The document has some indications of folds and other signs of age, but it is quite impressive and would look striking if appropriately matted and framed.
