BETWEEN THE WARS-1ST CAVALRY REGIMENT


Recommended Posts

I was fortunate at the last local military show to find two pano photos of the First Cavalry Regiment taken in the 1920's and the 1930's showing a great comparison of the uniforms and insignia.

Really cool Beast.

 

Interesting that the 1918 doesn't have SSI.

Thanks for pointing that out! I enjoy trying to find the odd details in these photos.

What was called an M1918 above is actually an M1924 -- same as the earlier high collar, but with gilt buttons. DUIs were worn then behind the collar discs, then when the open collars were adopted, they were initially worn behind the discs, then moved to the lapels.

Thanks Gil! I thought there was another model before the 1926 was introduced but couldn't locate the info. I'll check out your earlier FOOTLOCKER article.
