Red Hussars in Classic Style .. Downtown Port Arthur in 1961

When the Red Hussar Drum and Bugle Corps flashed past in parade formation, Port Arthurans viewed the best drill team in the area!

This photograph of the Red Hussars was taken on Procter Street in 1961 (probably the Cavoilcade parade)
(This  photo was taken from the cover of the Port Arthur telephone book dated September 1961)

Hussars at Football Game
I do not remember whicfh football game, but this one was our senior year during a football game in the stadium.
The Hussar majorettes were dressed like french maids during the half-time performance to fit the theme of the
music. I wish I knew who the Hussars are in the picture beside me.
