California Militia and National
Guard Unit Histories
Daly City Home Guard
(49th Company, California Home
The following article was copied from
the December 22, 1917 issue of California Home Guard News.
Q. M. Sergeant G. F. Wilde reports that they formerly had
43 members and the company was making very best progress possible
under leadership of Captain H. O. Kerby, but the Captain has
been called to another part of the State.
First Lieutenant J. H. Lasswell died
November 26th and was buried with military honors at the Presidio
by Spanish-American veterans.
It will now be necessary to reorganize
and elect new officers, which will be done, as there is considerable
interest to keep up the company here, especially if we can get
uniforms and arms.
