    Hi Everyone.
    Just wondered if anyone could tell me the exact year Boosey merged with Hawkes ? The reason I'm asking is I am selling a vintage 'Hawkes and Son' Soprano Cornet on Ebay. When I bought this instrument myself the lady who sold it said she thaught it was made in 1918 but other people have said Hawkes had merged with Bossey by then so it must be older than that.

    Many thanks if you can help !

    Although instruments from Boosey & Co and Hawkes & Son were still being made with thsoe names on up until 1934 - confusing business.
