Previously, it was on a tour of foreign service in Burma, India and the Sudan, where it maintained its high musical reputation. Mr. Arthur T. S. Chandler has been its conductor for nearly seventeen years. The band is leaving Whittington for a South of England station in September.
The regiment itself is one of the oldest in the British Army, having been raised in 1680, and it is the only regiment that enjoys the privilege of wearing the Lion of England as a badge.
