Private Joseph R Fish, 86th Aero Squadron, USA

Joseph R Fish was an American serviceman who was nursed at Beechland House in 1918.  His entry in Nurse Oliver’s album reads:

June 20-6-18             

Pte Joseph R Fish
86th Aero Squadron

He shares this page with entries from 235377 Private A Wearing of the 3rd Worcestershire Regiment, 205445 Private Joseph H Richards of the 11th East Yorkshire Regiment and 8451 Private Joseph Spruce of the 8th North Staffordshire Regiment.

The 86th Aero Squadron was formed on 17th August 1917 and served as part of the zone of advance in France during the latter part of the Great War.  The squadron has been redesignated several times since then and today operates as the 43rd Electronic Squadron Combat.

Nothing further is known of Joseph Fish and he appears to be the only US serviceman in Nurse Oliver’s album.
