Records of the Coldstream Guards Band date at least from 1742. In 1783 a band of twelve attested musicians was enlisted in Hanover. In 1815 the Band was raised to twenty, and it was in Paris during the occupation by the Allies after Waterloo. Thomas Will-man, the famous clarinettist, was the Bandmaster, and he was succeeded by Charles Godfrey in 1825. Of late years the most famous
Bandmaster of the Coldstream has been Colonel John Mackenzie Rogan ; for over twenty years he was the senior Director of Music of the Brigade of Guards.
