In the U. S. during WW II soldiers were referred to as “G. I.” – Government Issue. In France during WW I soldiers were referred to as “Poilu” (Hairy) because life in the trenches was not conducive to regular shaving. A liberal translation of JOURNEE DU POILU would be DAY OF THE SOLDIER. Minor and unobrusive evidence of one original center folio fold before the poster was linen backed.
