    Any and all information, material, photos, postcards, pictures, memorabilia, wanted about historical brass bands. All details, where possible, will be added to the online archives in the IBEW for reference and enjoyment by all.

    There is so little known about so many of the bands of earlier years, particularly those prior to the Second World War, that any details, however small, help to build up the knowledge. Much existing material is in the hands of private collectors, languishing in attics or dispersed across the world in museums, archives and with individuals.

    One aim of the IBEW is to collect together, in one online location, as much of this information as possible, provide references to other resources both on and off-line, and to make it available to all.
