We went over to Ipswich at the invitation of the Mayor of Ipswich Councillor John Le Grys to hear a concert performance by the Minden Band of the Queen’s Division. The band was reinforced by members of the Royal Anglian Territorial Army Band.
Proceedings started with the signing of a commemorative scroll to signify the award of the Freedom of the Borough of Ipswich to the Royal Anglian Regiment.
The varied programme was excellent. One extraordinary novelty item involved The Posthorn Galop with the solo part coming variously from a vacuum cleaner hose pipe, the handlebars of a bicycle, and a lavatory pan!
The concert was in aid of the Royal Anglian Regiment Army Benevolent Fund.
