interesting photo #3 the soldier appears to have arm band with what looks like a cross, also sporting a ribbon, any idea of what the arm band is??

Good eye,Bob.  Never noticed these before, and came up empty searching online.

unusual arm band, never seen one like it before, wonder if it was just used for the games???

I am thinking it must have religious connotations...perhaps a sign of a Catholic?

Worn on day of mass perhaps?
