Hello tMPers!!

My names Richard Sharp and am a Trombone player in the Royal Marines based in Scotland. Im also the Resident Conductor of Tullis Russel Mills Band based in Glenrothes.

I started playing about 17 years ago in Porthywaen Silver Band and only left them when I went to University to Salford. Since then Ive played for Walkden Silver, Greenway Selectus, Stalybridge Old, Lucketts and Clackmannan and District.

If anybody from those bands remembers me then drop me a pm as it would be great to catch up with any of you!! And anyone who used to play for Shropshire County Brass Band, anyone here remember Mike Denny?!

Always willing to say 'hello' to a man who took an Eagle at Talevera!

Sorry, apparently you're not THAT Richard Sharpe! OK. Always willing to say 'hello' to a Bootneck.

(My old Dad was a Booty Bugle Sergeant for 26 years)
