The Hampshire Ex-Servicemen's Concert Band


I wonder if you could be so kind as to put this on the notice board. Like me there may be a few old die-hards out there in the Hampshire area that might still want to work their fingers into a symphonic frenzy.

I'd like to mention the 'The Hampshire Ex-Servicemen's Concert Band' a great bunch of guys & gals from Military bands across various services, including a few ex-RMB's ...

Dave Clackett - Flute
Mick Blandford - Clarinet
Fred Wyllie - Saxophone
Fred Pacey - Bass
Bert Hall - String Bass

I wonder if there are any other lads that might fancy coming along. I've included details below.

Regards to all
