    Seeking records of 142nd Infantry Regimental Band

    Jeffrey LIghtsey Wayfarer

      I am looking for information regarding the 142 Infantry Regimental Band; particularly its reorganization prior to WWII.  The 142nd was involved in WWI. I am confused regarding its relationship to the Old Grey Mare Band located in Brownwood, TX. in the 1920s and 1930s. Our lineage that was confirmed on this site includes the 142nd Infantry Regimental Band that became the 36th Infantry Band in Italy in 1943.  (see Re: Looking for General Order 26 of Headquarters, 36th Infantry Division) I am trying to figure out when it was reconstituted prior to WWII, and/or did it still exist through the 1920s and 1930s.
