    Brass Band of Battle Creek

    An excellent band to say the least....I heard them in the Coal Exchange in Cardiff whilst they were on tour over here a few years back. Full marks for entertainment:clap: :clap: .....Steve Mead was playing euphonium on that day also.

    What is the most English thing you can think of?

    Show them photographs of how we park our cars...i.e not on driveways. :) Photographs of rows of terraced houses would certainly be of interest.:tup

    First Female Players

    We had a girl playing with Ogmore Valley Silver back in the late 40s when I joined the band. Her name was Joan Gould....her father Harry played on the top end. She was the first female to play in the band as far as I know.

    Broken Flugel!?

    Sounds as if the bolt has come partly adrift.....should be quite easy to fix ...ask one of the senior players;)

    Cornet mouthpieces

    Don't worry mate...I totally agree with you...use a Wick 4 (As used by Salvation Army cornet player) for cornet and 2F on flugel. Yamaha 16c4GP for trumpet though;)

    Sop Passes Out

    His grandad Eric James of Glynneath fame would have been immensely proud of him, as indeed his parents Alun and Pam are I expect. Well done Morgan:clap:

    It's so nice to be retired :D think in my last position I was driving anything between 40,000 and 50,000 miles per annum. Dread to think what it's like nowadays at busy periods. Can't moan about the roads locally in my's the drivers I could rant about!
