    Default BAND in hat brass

    Gents looking at photos from Henry P Moore of the 3RD New Hampshire Infantry Band and have seen a couple guys with BAND spelled out in brass letters on their Caps. Have any of you seen this in other units before?

    Alas wish I could RJ but the two photos that show it are in a book not electronic.

    You can see it somewhat but not well in this photo one of the two but the other photo outside the Band Masters tent(And yes Band Master is stenciled on the tent) shows it great and then helps you make it out on the Caps of the rest of the band in the photo you see here.

    I just noticed a similar thing yesterday while browsing through Borders bookstore. A book titled "Tennessee's Confederates" by Myers E. Brown had two pictures of a couple of soldiers from the 1st Tennessee Infantry I believe, where their company designation as well as "BAND" was displayed on top of the kepi.
