Black Jack, the Caparisoned horse and Caissons

Is the author is this piece correct in saying that Black Jack was the last horse to wear an Army brand?
He was purchased by the US Army Quartermaster on November 22, 1953. Black Jack had the honor of being the last of the Quartermaster–issue horses branded with the Army’s U.S. brand (on the left shoulder) and his Army serial number 2V56 (on the left side of his neck).

Great article. The Olg Guard is one of the toughest units to be
In. Equivalent to the famed Household Cavalry of GB.

Interesting question, to which I don't know the answer.

If the article is correct, he had a Preston brand, which would make sense.
