Aloha Everyone,

 

Scattered throughout the forum we have many items posted which relate to military musicians from all service branches.  Each service has always fielded and maintained marching bands, fleet bands, ensembles, quartets and choruses staffed with professional military musicians. If you have any photographs depicting military musicians from harmonicas to ukeleles, drums to bugles, guitars to clarinets, lets see them.  Should you also have any of the actual instruments or musicians uniforms, insignia and other items in your collections, please show them here to round out the topic.

I'm guessing this is the woodwind section of an unidentified Army or National Guard regimental band circa 1904-ish.

1st New York Infantry drummer. The photo dates probably between 1907 and 1910.

 

The stenciled marking on the tent in the background reads "1N.Y.A6" ... I'm guessing that the "A6" part is Company A, 6th Squad?

Regular Army Cavalry regiment band wearing a mixture of woolen and cotton service dress, circa 1910. There's a regimental number on the officer's cavalry collar insignia, but it's illegible.

This photo is proof that no WW I era Army training camp party is ever complete unless it has at least one  guitar, ukulele and improvised mess-kit fiddle present.

A pair of unidentified buglers from an unknown company circa 1917 or 1918. Note the pair of musician's chevrons on the left hand bugler and the improvised cord slings from which their bugles are slung.
