Cavalry Trumpet - Presented in WWII

A good example of the standard Cavalry Trumpet with proper regulation lanyard. These trumpets are much harder to find than the bugle. A cavalry trumpeter was issued both a trumpet and a bugle within a cavalry unit to sound calls, much like a drummer or bugler does in the field for infantry. Each tune is a signal of action: Fall in, Mount, Dismount, Reveille, Charge, etc. This particular trumpet was presented by the City of Fort William, Ontario to the 102nd Canadian Army Basic Training Center as a gift in July 1941. Probably used for Last Post every evening.
