... and if you look at the card, the bass drum has only the Post # (8), the town (St. Paul) and the sponsor (Schmidts) ... there's now mention of "Indians" ... and FYI ... when I did a google on Winnipeg, half the results came up Winnepeg ... looks like a dual spelling is acceptable ... where do you find this stuff? ... tag sales? ... antique shops? ... facinating ... wonder how many thumps that bass drum head took from the tomahawk before it broke ... LOL ...
I search ebay once in a while for "drum corps" and "bugle corps", not to mention the names of my corps. Only problem now is most of the listings are for CDs of old shows and no idea who burned them. (Rather get my old show CDs from places I know like DCW, Fleetwood and POCM).
And true to my off beat sense of things, the weirder the DC item the better, including off-beat corps names (Doremus Jersey Skeeters).
But GREAT point, there is no name mentioned of the corps. Nothing like me seeing something that isn't there. So perhaps when the corps needed to pick a name they looked at the uniforms and
. If this is a 1939 card then they probably would have been called "St Paul Post #8 Drum & Bugle Corps". And I had the same problem googling Winne(i)peg.
And possible young Prince Phillip and current Queen Elizabeth. IIRC she was in her 20s when she became queen. Had to sit thru a BBC special on that subject when I visited my cousin in Bristol, England. Then after the show was over and it was dark I found out that half her block was destroyed in the Blitz. "Oh if it was light out I could show you the differences between the houses". Nothing like missing out on being in the middle of history when you can watch it on TV..... Of course we never got a chance to go back to look.
