14457 Translation - Yiddish

2/10/2010 This is one of seven pages in Yiddish from my Uncle Nathan Hodosh' diary that he kept while serving in the US Army in France in 1917-1918.

On the left-hand page, there is a list of what appear to be attempts at spelling French names; I've figured out that Jarny and Sa[i]nt Maurice [Morris] are towns that were apparently battlefields, and I'm guessing that some/all of the other names are either more towns/battlefields, or possibly personal names. So if anyone who knows their WWI history can make some sense of them, I'd appreciate that, along with the translation.
