Welcome To Fiddler's Green

Halfway down the trail to Hell
In a shady meadow green
Are the Souls of all dead Troopers camped
Near a good old-time canteen,
And this eternal resting place is
known as Fiddler's Green
Marching past straight through to Hell
The Infantry are seen
Accompanied by the Engineers,
Artillery and Marines,
For none but the shades of Cavalrymen
Dismount at Fiddlers' Green
Though some go curving down the trail
To seek a warmer scene,
No Trooper ever gets to Hell
Ere he's emptied his canteen.
And so rides back to drink again
With friends at Fiddlers' Green
And so when man and horse go down
Beneath a sabre keen,
Or on roaring charge of fierce melee
You stop a bullet clean.
And the hostiles come to get your scalp
Just empty your canteen,
And put your pistol to your head
And go to Fiddler's Green.

A very good friend of mine when I was B-Troop ( Harry Campbell ) passed away just about a year ago around Christmas . When I left Bindlach, Germany Old Harry was screwing up big time. He and and I were Sgts. of the guard and he was in the N.C.O. club drunk. ( Not smart ) Fast forward many years and I had a big surprise Old Harry stayed 29 years in the Army and retired Sgt. Major E-9. He told me he lost two years time in grade.

Just recently found out that two outstanding NCO's from 2nd Plt C Troop have gone to Fiddler's Green.

1SG Robert A. "Cowboy" Wilkins 5/29/2017 in Colorado

1SG Marvin A. "Al" Olive 2/11/2020 in Georgia

No finer NCO's ever served!

Dave, what a way to bring tears to us, so early Wednesday Morning,

Add John Boyd; he depended on the oldtimers for his health,
and Joe Dixon who was staioned with me and turned out to be a lifelong friend of Sig Fertig.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
