1912 TRIAL CAVALRY EQUIPMENT AND EQUIPMENTS FOR OFFICERS AND ENLISTED MEN ORDNANCE DEPARTMENT MANUAL REPRINT:  A quality reprint of  “DECRIPTION AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE AND CARE FOR CAVALRY EQUIPMENT MODEL OF 1912”, originally printed in Washington by the Government Printing Office in 1914.  This is an exact reproduction of the service manual issued by the U.S. Army to the soldiers with the issue of the Model 1912 Trial Cavalry Equipments at the time of the Punitive Expedition into Mexico, making this one of the more important cavalry equipment manuals.     

The manual consists of 58 pages of text describing the various pieces of equipment to include:  the Model 1912 Service Saddle and Officer Saddle, all of the related horse equipment, holster, pocketed cartridge belts and bandoliers, sabres, mess gear, bit, and bridle.  In addition, there are twenty-five additional pages of very detailed illustrated plates that show each item of the soldier’s issue.    

An excellent source of information regarding the issue and wear of this equipment for collector and reenactor alike, and an important addition to the library of any serious student of the US Cavalry.  This copy is brand new and unused.   $25
