    I recently found this U.S.M.C. pin from Camp Meyer, Guantanamo, Cuba dated 1913. I am guessing that it is a band pin because the center has a figure holding a saxophone. Thanks to PoliticalPinbacks for finding a photo of the band in camp the same year!! Thanks, Rob

      The first Marine Barracks, Naval enlisted barracks and Officers' quarters were located on South Toro Cay in 1904. The first post hospital was on North Toro Cay. The Naval Station was relocated from South Toro Cay to the eastern shore of the mainland in 1913 ("Main Station"), the former site now abandoned. The first rifle range was built in 1906 near Evans Point on the mainland (now part of the present golf course). A commercial cable station was built in 1907 on Windward Point. A fuel oil tank farm was built at Happy Valley in 1913. There was little new construction after 1913 until 1940 when the base was greatly expanded to accommodate the Navy's war needs. Camp Meyer on Deer Point was a Marine encampment used during the 1912 civil disturbance in Cuba, and also as a staging area in 1915 for the Haiti and the Dominican Republic interventions.

      Love it - Plus that was the year my Dad was born,
      I think this was for the 2d Provisional Brigade as they were there in 1913

      Here's a photo of Camp Meyer from April 1913 with the band shown in the center.

      I added a picture of the camp with the band in the front center dated the same year.
