Unit ID on SAW haversack

Recommended Posts

Have been unable to determine what this stenciled unit ID is on this SAW haversack. Crossed rifles with "G", "F", "V" from L to R with a "4" in the bottom of the crossed rifles. I have 2 photos but the stencil is a little hard to see. Any thoughts? Thanks for the help.post-164221-0-95036100-1538795021_thumb.jpgpost-164221-0-57532800-1538795043_thumb.jpg

Co. F, 4th Georgia Volunteer Infantry?

After a quick search I can't find any info showing there was a 4th Georgia Vol. Inf. during the SAW, but not sure.

I would think it is a Georgia national guard unit. Those haversacks show up on the border in 1916.
