Scarce USMC Band Enlisted Shoulder Boards
Posted 19 December 2009 - 06:33 AM
Just want to add some pictures of 1892 Marine band shoulder boards I've just got,
it seems like they have been re-issued to the navy military academy band around the 1900's

after some research I find out the Marine Corps re-issued them to the naval academic band in Annapolis...
not too many survived since the all end up after that in city or circus band....and finally in the garbage.... :crying:
