UK tour with the 9th Lancers Band in 1953
written by william denis haydock



I was cornet/piano player with the Band and between May and August we played at Leamington Spa (Coronation fortnight), Brighton, Weymouth and closing the tour with two weeks at Folkstone.

When I was posted to Detmold Germany I was immediately struck by the comfort plus the well prepared food of Lothian Barracks. We had double glazing and a tiled bathroom and only six to a room. Where I had come from, Catterick camp in Yorkshire, was an absolute disgrace - rat infested huts and good food spoiled.During my time in Germany I had two Christmas Dinners 1952 - 53 and they were magnificent. I remember Sgt. Geoff Daniel bringing tea in bed for us on Christmas morning - in a bucket.
