I have just happened upon the above photos and am so pleased to have seen them. My uncle was Tom Attiwell Bandmaster, and I have also seen pictured my cousin Roger Attiwell, now promoted to glory.

Having seen some of the above images I recognise and recall some of the S.A members which all joined the South Notts Hussars Band when I became a member in 1960. The members I remember of the band were Arthur Gay, Arthur Wright, Walter Hepple, Eric Shakespeare and Jabe Gay. I also remember them speaking highly of Tom Attiwell who was their bandmaster at the Mansfield S.A, and that what a fine cornet player he was. I was fortunate as a very junior cornet player at that time to receive such experience from the members of the S.A. and also managed to obtain an S.A. cornet tutor book which featured many of the cornet solo's which Tom played and also recorded with Mansfield S.A. It would be nice to hear from others with similar memories

Hello Michael, you've got me wondering  which one is your Grandad.  Is it the third person from the left playing trombone on the outside photograph dated 1937.?  Many of the faces are familiar and at one time named by my father, but we didn't make a note of them.  If I'm wrong in my assumption, let me know which photograph he's on and what instrument he played to narrow it down.

You are correct Roy re my Grandad Harry in the 1937 photo.

He is also in the 1942 photo on tenor horn. He died later that year.
