The US had changed from the .38 revolver as the standard issue in 1911, to the .45 Colt ACP automatic (which remained the standard sidearm into the 1980s) but there were undoubtedly still officers carrying the .38, out of preference or lack of availability of the .45 automatic. Many men carried "unofficial" pistols and revolvers, such as the Colt .45 "Peacemaker" (actually the "Single Action Army", which had been the official sidearm until 1892) were always popular. US pilot Frank Luke, the only US aviator awarded thewhile the war was going on, crashed behind enemy lines after being gutshot while shooting down three balloons, and pulled out his .45 revolver to shoot it out with German troops closing in to capture him, and went down fighting. The standard French sidearm was the Lebel Model 1892 revolver.
