The Band was formed in 2008 as a result of two ex Brigade of Guards Drummers, both
living in North Wiltshire, meeting through membership of the Guards Division Corps
of Drums Association.
Stuart Sutton and John Ireland were both concerned that there are few such bands
left in existence especially in the South of England and that it would be a very
useful discipline to give young people in this area and a marvellous opportunity
for them to learn to play a musical instrument and perform in a marching Band.
Unfortunately having lost nearly all the Flute section the Band was unable to continue
as a Fifes & Drums. Help came in the form of The Southern Jacobites Pipe Band based
out of Ludgershal who had no drummers but plenty of Pipers. Consequently an arrangement
was made whereby the Drummers moved over to the Pipes and Drums.
Membership is open to anyone. No matter where you live if you can get here, come
and join us and learn to play in our band.
