American troops tended to have records sent over & to find machines overseas. I've seen a postcard of a Victor VV-VI in a YMCA hut, and a US soldier sitting with a Pathé disc machine- possibly "borrowed" from some home.

Vernon Castle wrote to his wife Irene to send him the latest dance tunes, and cautioned her to pack them more carefully as the ones she'd previously sent arrived broken.


And, of course, Victor and other's marketed their standard smaller models for war use:

Probably not of interest, but for the sake of completeness, another British WW1 trench gramophone was the Celeste:

The Army & Navy models which do turn up are often missing a few bits, line the grille cover and the reproducer transport block - and they can have substantial repaint jobs

Mr. Bilton still has it listed on his website, but he may just not have updated if he sold it at Union.
