Britannia RNC Dartmouth 1958
John Bower 1 2 3

Dear Rich,

Having seen and read the articles on Brittania Naval College circa 1968 I scoured the archives (a cardboard box) to find a couple of photos from 1958. The occasion was a formal visit by Queen Elizabeth and a nostalgia trip by Prince Phillip. We carried out various duties that day but the only ones I have photos of is the outside marching band.
That day I was the Drum Major having escaped the Bass drum chore, if nothing else we were multi- tasking to use a modern expression.
Phil Coombs was the Bandmaster but sadly I cannot recall any other names
