The strange case of...........
HMS Glory 1951
row standing, Left to Right:
an historical note the band in GLORY was the first formed band to leave
Deal in January 1951 dressed in the present day dress of broad red striped
trousers and collar-dogs, following the amalgamation on 1 September
1950 of the RNSM bands with the remaining two Group bands at Portsmouth
and Plymouth, Chatham RM barracks having closed on that date. Until
then, all band ranks wore a lyre collar badge, and the same thin stripe
in the trouser as still worn by Buglers.
