Join the Club, the REME Band was disbanded just before Christmas in Arborfield to reform in Catterick sometime this year as a 12-15 strong "Music Entertainment" group to compliment the traditional Band of the Royal Armoured Corps also based in Catterick. The Gunner Band have left Woolwich after 200 years for Larkhill I believe.

It is possible, as they don't have many soldiers to march up and down now, they can afford to dispense with musical accompaniment.   Most people nowadays have iPhones, that could be the answer, a new movement could be written in to the Drill Manual - "PREPARE TO FIT HEADPHONES (Wait for it), "FIIIIIIT....................... HEADPHONES".

The demise of a band. Is this a sign of the times we are in. Small Army, a couple of ships, a few aircraft, the selling off of military land, moving married quarters into caravans (makes them more mobile and just a couple of red dots on the world map (colour chosen for our former colonies) etc, etc.
As private Frazer used to say 'Were all doomed'
