Photograph of junior players in Reepham Band taken in 1940 behind The Dial House with Pamela Barsted, the first female player, sitting between Gordon Frankland and Tommy Ruffles.

Possibly pre WWI. The man in the centre resembles Sidney P Eglington (1872-1948). Some of the uniforms are unusual but all have badges/insignia related to the Salvation Army.

Band members are wearing the early uniform with self-coloured cording embroidered on the front & toggle fastenings.
