Time was when Market Lavington Prize Silver Band was at the heart of many a village event and this is one of them. It’s an Armistice Day parade back in 1931.
The location is The Market Place with Northbrook heading off down the hill at back right. The band members, no doubt under the guidance of John Merritt, are leading a collection of medal wearing veterans, presumably from World War One.
The bass drum is of particular interest to us for we believe this is the drum we have in the museum.
Sad to say we don’t have the names of any band members, let alone the veterans. Can anybody out there help?
