1902 - 1920 Army of the United States chevrons

Hi Sarge, that is one hell of a nice display of chevrons, I for one would very much enjoy owning those framed and displayed on a wall.

 

As always a fine addition to the forum site, keep it up.

 

Cheers ( Lewis )

 

LEWIS: Yes, am sure a lot of serious chevrons collectors would like have have these mpunted on their walls, providing their wives would allow them to do so? "She who must be obeyed" might have thoughts otherwise what graces the walls of "HER" home? Here is a 1918-1920 Band Leader "chevrons" that in May 1918 replaced No. 208 and was authorized for all branches until August 1920. In January 1920, the star was changed to white, the lyre to yellow, and the wreath to green. No longer were the "chevrons" subdued. Thank you, Lewis, glad to add these to the U.S. Militaria Forum site. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009! w00t.gif Sarge Booker of Tujunga, California (Please feel free to email me for daily scans like this and more at no cost? [hhbooker2@yahoo.com] :blink:

:blink: 1902-1916 Drum Major, Number 214. [used by artillery, cavalry, engineers, infantry and the United States Military Academy drum majors from 1902 through 1916, this grade was consolidated with Headquarters Company first sergeant, by the National Defense Act of 1916. The U.S.M.A. Band was still authorized a separate drum major and accordingly in May 1918, Special Regulation No.42 was changed to reflect this situation. During the first World War, several firms made these chevrons for wear by all drum majors and band leaders, although it was unauthorized in 1916 for all but the U.S.M.A. Drum Major.

:( Number 222. 1913-1918, Sergeant 1st Class, Quartermaster Corps. First specified in 1913, the chevron was originally made in pairs. As of 1916, this grade was not to exceed 2-1/2 percent of the Quartermaster Corps strength. The chevron, although unauthorized after 1918, was worn well into 1919 by some men. :)

:D Number 210. Assistant Band Leader, 1918-1920. Instituted in May 1918 for general application, this chevron replaced Catalogue Number 200. Until 1920 the chevron was entirely in olive drab, but at that time the design was changed to green wreath and yellow lyre on an olive drab wool background.

Aloha Sarge,

 

These are the chevrons I mentioned to you last week, not certain of their exact ID so everyone feel free to fully identify them.

 

I believe these are all early 1902's as they came with a batch of older chain stitched Indian War era chevrons.

SALVAGE SAILOR: That is Number 313, Corporal, Infantry, 1902-1904. 1872-1902 was when they had the larger chain-stitched chevrons, according to LTC Wm. K. Emerson
