I'm posting photos of three cavalry guidons in collection. The first, troop F 3rd cavalry is a standard M1885 pattern. Measuring 27" on the pole and 43" on the fly. It is made from the regulation light weight cotton. The second, troop A 14th cavalry conforms to the M1885 dimensions but is made from a heavier, tighter woven cotton. The letters and numbers are also made from a heavier cotton. The 14th cavalry was stationed in the Phillippines in the early 1900's. This guidon could possibly be theater made. The third, troop c 127th cavalry is a later, mid thirties, regulation guidon. It is smaller than the '85 pattern. Measuring 19" on the pole and 28" on the fly. The change in size took place in the mid 1930's.
