Band, 1884

Sergeant Fred Bagley in the forground was a keen amateur musician and was responsible for forming the NWMP band. It played at social functions as well as on parade. He carries a sword and wears a pouchbelt although I am not sure whether he had a binoculars case on his back or a pouch with sheet music. They are at Fort Battleford and wearing winter headgear and white gauntlets.
