Need help identifying uniform circa 1895~1900


Recommended Posts

Is this gentleman part of California State Military Reserve? 1st California Infantry Regiment? Cadet? Veteran Association? Some kind of fraternal Order?

 

The collar insignias and cap badge states "1 CAL", the sword looks cadet, fraternal or medical, but the photo is not detailed enough to see.

 

Thanks in advance!

The sword does look like the Knights of pythias swords, but a ton of sabers look the same but here's some for reference

It is a fraternal sword so I would think it is a picture of a member of a fraternal organization. Would need a better picture of the sword to tell which one.

The three best things in life are a good landing, a good orgasm, and a good bowel movement.

A night carrier landing is one of the few opportunities to experience all three at the same time.

 

You can not pronounce as knowledge anything you can not demonstrate.
