I started playing in 1941 and have played for many Lincoln brass bands:

Hykeham Malleable Band, Lincoln Borough Band, Lincoln British Legion Band, T.A. Band (4/6 Lincolnshire Regt.), 2nd Battalion Royal Lincolnshire Regt., Ruston Bucyrus Band, Fire Brigade Band and now Silver Sounds Band where I try to keep control in the 'Back Row Gang'!

In my spare time I enjoy DIY and housework...!

My most embarrassing moment was when I fell backwards off a 4 foot stage when taking applause!
