    I'm trying to locate a set of "Scarlet and Green" by Thomas Noble originally published by Boosey & Hawkes and now well and truly out of print. It was the regimental march of the 16th/5th Lancers and our band president who served with them is very keen that we should use it!

    Can anybody help? PLEAASE!

    Try ringing Kneller Hall. One of the forces guys on here will know the number I'm sure.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but they say they can't do anything for civilian bands:( (for copyright reasons)

    I remember playing this frequently in the army...the 16/5th amalgamated years ago and now I believe are somewhere deep in the light cavalry band..

    This is a link to their website http://www.army.mod.uk/bands/band_of_the_light_cavalry/index.htm

    if they cannot 'lend' you a copy, try kneller hall..they will have a copy for sure

    If you need any more help, please shout

    I think Studio Music have the Boosey and Hawkes millitary band archive (think I got a catalogue from them reasonably recently) and they reprint/ photocopy things to order (I'm fairly sure that the millitary band set could easily be adapted for brass band). Might be worth contacting them.


    (I'm guessing you've contacted Boosey & Hawkes sheet music department already?)

    Thanks to all for your suggestions - I have now got the offer of a set (military band) so am looking forward to getting to grips with it before too long!
