I can honestly state, I know little about the 38th Division Band. The Internet provides some information. But I cannot find a site to inform me about names or performances during the 1940’s. I will keep looking, I always do.
The back of this print reads, “This is our 38th Div. Band. 170 men and the drum major. The 37th Div. Band of 100 men is waiting on the sidelines. Picture taken before game, before much of a crowd had come.”
Written in pencil below the explanation of the photo is ” Rec’d. Jan. 7, 1942″.
The back of the photo contains a stamp, Hammond Photo Service, Meridian, MISS. with the date Dece. 30, 1941.
I am assuming a young person from the military attended the performance and game. The photograph was taken and sent back home to a loved one. If I find anymore in the box relating to this photo, I will post it.
Until next time….peace
