Banjo strumming seems to be the preferred form of musical entertainment below decks on this homeward bound troop ship circa 1919.

Great idea for a thread! Here is my contribution, a pre-1895 image of the 2nd Indiana Infantry Regimental Band.

Cool topic! My Uncle's Step-GGrandfather was the Band Master for the 147th NYNG for over 20 years! No picture, but they still have his gold 20 year service badge. :)

This is a WW1 era yardlong for the HQ Company 324th FA taken at Camp Sherman Ohio. The yardlong is in rather poor condition. It looked like all the musicians are all on the left so I keyed in on that area:

Another yardlong for the 83rd Division Troop.

 

Neither are in frames and I think I need to get them flattened out and framed or move them to someone else who will. 

Nonetheless, they are neat photos!
