Note: In order to save your download time and our disk space the majority of the photographs available here on the site have been deliberately compressed in size (hopefully with only negligible loss of quality). If you should wish a copy of the original of any of the following photos of knobbly knees, bulging cheeks, straining backs and over-concentrated brains please feel free to ask. We reserve the right to refuse your request, of course, if we believe the photograph might be used for commercial or other purposes deemed unsuitable by the Committee. Such photographs are intended and supplied only for personal use as souvenirs by members, friends and supporters of the Band.

St. Patrick's Day 2009
The band was invited this year to play at a St. Patrick's Day Parade actually over in Ireland itself for the first time. Short notice and the need to commit to the entire weekend meant not all the band was available to go but those that did had a fantastic time, being looked after with predictable Celtic hospitality. Another pint, sir/madam?...

Archive photos from 1984
The display of a few old photos on the News Page concerning John Brown has spurred a few memories. Ex-member Paul Swift has sent in a few photos of the band from 1984. Click on the thumbnail to start a slideshow of the set. If anyone else cares to send in similar old memories we would be pleased to receive them for consideration for publication here on the website.
