Originally Herr Martin was the battery tailor, but when he died his wife took over his position.

She is remembered as a very sweet and hard working lady, and would tailor our uniforms with great skill and quality.

A tailored set of Khakis always looked and felt good to wear.

The next four photos are a great illustration of what an Inspection entails.

I am assuming that it's just a Battery Inspection. It seems that if it was Battalion it would have been mentioned.
