RAF Melksham, in 1948 written by Gordon Roy Hodson
There were two big dance bands taken from the military band, the Number 1 and the Number 2.
The Number 1 was one of the best bands in the R.A.F. These bands were not acknowledged officially as at that time you had to sign on for 5 years to be a musician. But some of the best musicians, who had no wish to sign on, found their way in to these bands. They came from some of the most famous bands in the country. We played on all parades and had normal duties at other times.
