The trumpeter is a man on horseback committed to sounding the trumpet, from which he takes his name. The trumpet is one of the most pleasant military instruments beings made of silver, rosette, or red copper, and most often of brass. The most considerable parts of the trumpet and its ornaments are:
A. is the body of the Trumpet.
B. The mouthpiece or l’embouchure
C. The Button or Bouton
D. The Bell
E. A silk, gold or silver cord
F. The Mute or Sourdine
G. His Banner. It is on this banner that the arms of the Prince or Colonel, to whom the trumpet belongs, are usually painted, or embroidered.
Each cavalry company or troop must have its trumpeter, which carries the livery of the Prince or Colonel to whom the regiment belongs. The Trumpeter must be a man of tirelessness and vigilance. He must be always ready to carry out the commands with his trumpet. The Trumpeter must be a discreet man, especially when he is employed in talks with enemies. He must never use terms other than those of he has been given, and never interfere by giving advice. In the talks and in the treaties, there will be no ambiguity or feelings contrary to those he has proposed.
