Every marching unit has its own unique banner. It announces who the next unit is, where they are from, and who their sponsor is. I didn’t get the chance to see many back in the day. We were too busy loading / unloading, marching / playing, to just stand idle and watch other units and their banners go by.
50+ years later, I finally get to see what other corps were using to announce their arrival. It’s an important piece of advertising. It sets the tone of the unit that follows. Some are regimental, some are splashy, and some are…underwhelming.
