1974 – Centenary Dinner

Photographed at The Bibury Suite, Salisbury Races. This is one of those occasions when the photographer seems to have been stuck at the back of the hall, rather than a picture of the dignitaries he has taken one of the younger element of the time – Mark Pye with hair!

Working up the left hand side is, with the Joe Ninety glasses and long hair (it was fashionable back then) John Hayes 1st Horn at the time, Christina Green – Keith’s little sister, Andy King 2nd Horn, now retired; Andy Chislett, Principal Cornet and now razzing for a living in big bands etc. The right hand row is girl that I am not sure about, then Mark Pye 3rd Cornet back then; Dave Kennell famous for his story about someone spitting at him whilst playing in the King’s Hall, Belle Vue when all along it was the roof leaking; then two more girls that I don’t know and Steve Chislett.
