Ah, now, if you compare the names from the "earlier" pic I see the 2 young lads #'s 26/7  named as Hutton & Clark, on this pic #2 and #9 a few years older.....we're (mostly you) are starting to pin this timeframe down.

I started looking at that this afternoon. I copied your list of names from 1922, 29 & 32 to see what I could match up. 

I would imagine that any miner, that was a musician, was  loyal to the pit he worked at and although I couldn't prove it I would be guessing that in the 20's & 30's when all the Bedlingtonshire pits were in production the miners wouldn't have had to travel to a pit outside the area they lived.  

I can also image that most bands had many extra members spread over the 3 shifts and it it would be costly for anyone to miss a normal, or weekend, shift so it would be unusual for the same people to be competing in every competition :-
