Unknown - According to A. V. Kautz, writing during the Civil War, regiments were allowed a regimental ordnance sgt and an armorer.
The ordnance sgt was one of the company sgts assigned to help the regimental CO keep the records of the ordnance in the CO's charge as ordnance officer of the regiment. His position was not the same as a post ordnance sgt, which was a very special position. According to Nichols, Sgt James Hill of Co B was appointed regimental ordnance sgt on 20 Jan 1877. He was later a post ordnance sgt. One possible candidate for regimental ordnance sgt at the time of the LBH is Sgt Samuel Alcott of Co A, who was discharged 10 Jan 1877 10 days before Hill's appointment.
The regimental armorer was supposed to be an enlisted man of one of the companies who was entitled to a set of repair tools and who continued on duty with his company, repairing arms when time was available.
