My wife and I, together with our two daughters, were involved with the Harpenden Corps of Drums from 1979 to 1985.

The band was originally a Scout and Guide Bugle Band, but it left the Scout Movement in the early 1980s to become an American-style Drum Corps.

The Band was then known as The Harpenden Corps of Drums - The Ace of Herts.

The picture shows the Corps marching at Kimpton Fete in 1983.
