Here is a little bit more his Name is Royal Alton Thompson service # 2381949. He was born in 1894 in New Hampshire. He was drafted and actually left for France in April 16th 1918 on the ship Calamares leavingfrom Hobeken New Jersey. He is listed with HQ Company 60th Infantry. According to documents he was listed AWOL on the ships manifest on the Calamares not sure if this was an error but somehow he was seen on another ships logs of the Baltic showing a departure in April 25th of 1918 from New York listed with Casual Dept 5th Div Co 3.
Mr. Thompson is last seen on the ship Finlands logs listed as med/ surgery sick wounded leaveing St. Nazaire France in Dec 1918. My guess is according to these logs that he was schedule to leave on the 16th of April 1918 but somehow went AWOL returned to military control then actually leaving on the 25th of April 1918 from New York cause he missed the original departure on the 16th. He may have had issues with traveling from New Hampshire to make his orginal departure, listing as AWOL. He was injured because of the third ship relating to sick and wounded on the ship Findland. Hope this helps.
