Celebrating 70 years

On Saturday 24th March, we celebrated the Corps' 70th Anniversary at the Britannia Hotel in Coventry.


A great night of music, memories and catching up with old friends was had by all and we wanted to thank all of those who shared in a truly special evening with us.


We'll get some of the photos of the night here on the site over the next few weeks.
