Welcome to Dragoon Base, sir.

Yes, we still have a few left from your era. You may hear from a couple of them soon. My dad was in Bindlach with 1st Battalion from 1953 to 1955 as motor officer, but he passed away in 1983. Yesterday would have been his 104th birthday.

I've got several regimental yearbooks you might like to look at. You can see them by clicking on the link to the year you want to view.

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.
