Goodwin’s Weekly, sometime in 1917 (I think), printed the following advice…
Americans might mobilize a corps of ukulele players to terrify any possible enemy.
This advice seems to have been taken seriously … on a small scale … because on Thursday, 22 May, 1919, the Washington Times reported that Battery B of the 110th Artillery included in its ranks Corporal Taylor, the ukulele sharp. See if you can find him below.
Battery B was regards as the most efficient of the 3 from Washington. During the 11 months they were in France, not one of them was court marshalled.
