: I have a photograph of my grandfather William Henry Heagerty at the age of 16 and dated 1906. He is wearing on his left arm a white arm band tied in a bow. In my research I cannot find anything that mentions the wearing of arm bands, any idea what it may have been for?

If he's wearing a suit, I'd suspect that it's a photograph of him at his Confirmation though at 16 he'd be a little older than usual.
