Just doing some research on our band and I understand that our previous band name of Killamarsh Silver Prize Band derived from winning a silver prize at the Crystal Palace contest (pre 1936 when it was burnt down). We dropped the Prize bit some years ago as the band had not contested since the early 1960s. I also note that there are still a fair number of bands around with silver or prize in the names of these bands or have some reference to Crystal Palace on their websites e.g. Long Eaton, Chesham Town, Harrogate, Watford, Cawston, Whitwell, Chapeltown, Ammanford, Parc & Dare and Kippax. I am trying to locate when our band won this prize and in what section did they compete. Regretably our bands old records were destroyed following the death of the band secretary many years ago. So if there are any Silver Prize band historians on here or your band has records of competing bands at Crystal Palace say between 1920 and 1935 it would be useful.
