I recently came across a sterling silver cup, the cup has the following engraved on it War Department Polo Club October 1924 High Goal Event won by 3rd Cavalry Lt. C. E. Byers Lt. A. George Lt. H. C. Hine Capt. J. H. Irving. I would like to find out more about the polo club. I found out that each post had polo teams to help keep the skills of the cavalry sharp. Just wondering if anyone has information on the polo club or the third cavalry. I may be wrong be I found a little information that possibly the 3rd cavalry was stationed at Fort Meyer, VA am I wrong?
