    I have found some fascinating film clips of bands at www.britishpathe.com . They are free to download (you have to register first). They are all taken from the old Pathe cinema newsreels and documentaries. The best one is of Munn & Felton's back in the 1930s...it's just like one of those Harry Enfield spoofs!
    Copyright prevents me from re-posting it, but visit the site and enter the words "boots bands" in the search box and you will find it. I even recognised a young Bert Sullivan playing euphonium.
    It is also interesting to see the Crystal Palace contest in full swing at the (now derelict) site where I sometimes walk the dog.
    Have fun!

    Andy.
