The above photograph was donated by Mr Tuffs of Connaught Rd, Market Harborough (16 January 1996).

He believes the photograph was taken in 1933 on the steps of Church Langton Rectory. He recalls that the Band won a cup for the march BB&CF and that the test piece was Coriolanus.

The band went on to win the deportment cup for marching in the new uniforms at Skegness - to the tune of 'Blaze Away'.
