A number of key members of Wallasey Silver Band used to live in School Lane, off Wallasey Village. My mum knew many of them (we are talking about in the late 20s and 30s) and has mentioned names in the past - but I forget. Easy enough for me to ask mum for a few names when I visit tomorrow.

The Wallasey Villagw Public Subscription Band (to give them their full title) was founded by Joe Edgar. I have no precise date but I read somewhere the band were founded in the early 1920s.

Their first uniform was black, with red and silver facing. Later their uniforms changed at the time of George VI to navy blue with scarlet facings and a gold aiguillete on their shoulders. They use to practice in the Pears Club in the Big Yard (Wallasey Village)

Your mum may know Herbert Kemp who was the longest surviving member of the band.

By the 1970s the number of people in the band amounted to 7 members so it was disbanded.

* note :- in my notes I have a date of 1913 when the band formed.

* note :- G.H Peers Club at the top of Big Yard not Pears Club as I noted earlier.

Pity nobody has revived it. Over here someone tried to get a band going and now we have "The Sleaford Show Band" and it is doing a bomb, all ages across the board and they are getting better every year.
