Charles - "The eldest son of Charles L. F. and Elizabeth Hart Jarvis Beach Robinson, Caldwell Colt Robinson, was a platoon leader in 82d Company, 3d Battalion, 6th Marines, 2nd Div., AEF, when he was killed at Belleau Wood, France, 6 June 1918. Caldwell was awarded the Navy Cross, the DSC and a Silver Star for his service."
Just had another thought for you to chase down: Father Charles L. F. bought gun in 1909, died July 1916. Son was a Marine officer, went to France in 1917, was a platoon leader and was KIA at Belleau Wood; do you suppose son took father's gun to France, to Belleau Wood?
Tantalizing, eh? You have quite a find there!
