This nice pic shows tow young buglers of the US Army, portrayed in a studio in Tréveray (Meuse, France) in 1917 or 1918. It seems that these bugles are not identical. Moreover, the one of the left seems to be damaged. Does someone know if there was a tradition to use these instruments for a long time in US regiments?

  1. While they are American soldiers the bugles that they hold are not American but of European design. They are no doubt stage props from the photographer’s studio. The US Army did have buglers who still had signaling duty in regiments of WW1, but the US Army issue bugle is longer and more like a trumpet or cornet without valves.
