C. W. Service in Flammable Oils

C. W. Service in Flammable Oils
Creator: Hughes, James Clark, 1888-1964
Date: Undated
Captain Hughes took this photo of C. W. (Chemical Warfare) Service in Flammable Oils. Congress had made the Chemical Warfare Service a permanent part of the Army in 1920, with duties to continue "the investigation, development, manufacture or procurement and supply of all smoke and incendiary materials, all toxic gases, and all gas defense appliances." It can be assumed that this is one of the demonstrations that were being observed by a crowd in the grandstand probably at Camp Holabird or perhaps since Hughes didn't identify the location it was at the first temporary Chemical Warfare School building at Edgewood Arsenal, Md. Another assumption that can be made is that the materials in the Flammable Oils were inert and not of the same type that would have been used in actual Chemical Warfare. The date of this demonstration is not mentioned however, Captain Hughes was stationed at Camp Holabird, Maryland only until February 14,1920. James C. Hughes, as part of the 35th Division, left Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and traveled to Hoboken, New Jersey, where he boarded the troop ship "Ceramic" on May 18, 1918.
