Netherton Colliery Brass Band ?

Recommended Posts

@Bandsman1966 :- a photo of an unknown brass band  posted on the Bedlington remembered Facebook group by Allan Smith.

A member, Joan Morland, has identified Arthur Brodie in the front row and I see that name appears in the Netherton Colliey brass band photos you have in your Netherton Colliey Band album .

Can you confirm this photo is the Netherton Colliery band and you can add it to your album.

Do you recognise any of these @Canny lass?

Definitely Arthur Brodie, front row, 4th from the left, leaning on his euphonium. To the left of him (3rd from left) is, I believe, a very young Joe Grant from Clifton Row. A fantastic cornet player who often played the solo spot outside the council offices (where the judges sat) at the miner's picnic. He is the only specs- wearing member of the colliery band I have seen. Judging from his age this photo must be early fifties. Perhaps Joan Morland might remember him as well.

Other than those two there are only two others I recognise but can't put a name to them as yet.
