The Horse Shows - Schofield Barracks, Hawaiian Division 1930's


Recommended Posts

Aloha Everyone,

 

While trolling through my piles of junk yesterday with a visiting USMF member I uncovered this stash of Hawaiian Division Horse Show programs which were annual events at Schofield Barracks between the wars. These shows were intra-Division athletic competitions which were also open to equestrian family members in some categories of competition.

I have more of these somewhere with a pile of 'smoker' (boxing matches), basketball and baseball items

These books are always filled with details about the history of the Division and the competing units

One often sees photos of HD troops on furlough to the Big Island (Hawaii) touring the Volcanos and Hilo. How did they get there?

Steeplechase course and an interesting category - Mascots - by type, size, and just darn good looking. Mules vs. Wolfhounds, Bulldogs vs. Terriers, and who entered the rats and mice?

Very neat. The Royal T. Frank is a beautiful ship. Reminds me of the Medea at the San Diego Maritime Museum. I also love the font on the 1934 title page. Don't see that used much anymore!

My Great Grandfather helped put one of these on for 1930 at the S.B. Do those programs exists for 1930? Would love to own one.

Man those are really cool magazines. Did they just bring back the Pre WW2 section on the forum cause I don't recall ever seeing it?
