Members of Yorkley Onward Band in 1956.
Roger wrote: "This is Yorkley Onward Band (I think the year was 1956) at Bream Band Contest on the Rugby Ground. I believe we won with "Sailors Songs".
During the movement aptley named "The Storm" the heavens opened up and it poured with rain.. We were all soaked to the skin.
I think we won on initiative, or plain sympathy".
