Fantastic images! Thanks so much.

The Fife & Drum Corps image seems to be captioned as follows:
"Fife & Drum Corps in front Trophy"
"Officers in Undress in rear"
"also men about Hd Qrs"

What do you think the "Trophy" is about? Is one of the flags displayed in the image a captured flag? Or maybe one of the drums? Thanks again for sharing these great images. :thumbsup:

There doesn't seem to be anything except those drums and flag? One large drum, a soldier on either side seems prominent although it's not centered for the photo like you'd think if it's a trophy.
