Conducted by Captain F. J. Ricketts, Director of Music, Royal Marines
Alexander Henderson (bass)
The conductor of this band, Captain F. J. Ricketts, is perhaps better known as Kenneth Alford, composer of the famous war-time march 'Colonel Bogey', which was written at Fort George, Inverness-shire, in 1913. For nineteen years he was conductor of the band of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, and was appointed director of music to the Royal Marines in succession to B. Walton O'Donnell in 1927. In addition to many well-known military marches, Captain Ricketts has composed a good deal of popular music. His numerous arrangements for military bands range from complete standard works, such as symphonies and overtures, to popular numbers, including a fantasia on his own marches entitled 'Colonel Bogey on Parade'.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
