Royal Signals Northern Band

One of 19 Army Reserve Bands based in the United Kingdom.

The bands history goes back to 1952 when the then Commanding Officer received a letter from Durham Territorial Association stating that it was prepared to authorise an additional Band for Teritorial Army Units in the association area.

Formation of the Band

The Band was formed as a Brass Band as it was considered easier and more cost effective to recruit Brass players in a northern based band. The first Bandmaster was a Mr W Holmes, a Mill Manager of Darlington and Simpson Rolling Machines. This appointment did not last long and the Band was taken on by a Mr A Woodall who had had previous military band experience with the Green Howards.
