Civil War Indian Wars WWI & II Lost Battalion

The 2 Pictures Below
were sent to us in email by Paula Schaeper pgschaeper@gmail.com  
She writes: I have a couple of photos of some members of the Lost battalion as they trained before they were mobilized. My dad, James E. Garrison was second lieutenant in the Texas National Guard unit. He was not part of the unit when they were activated he was too old for combat service and was sent to Kansas to train troops there. Unfortunately the original photos do not identify any of the men pictured.  But you can get an idea of the equipment they were using and the conditions under which they trained. And if you look carefully, you can see the crossed-cannon insignia on the door of the truck.
