Following on from the recent concerts and tv appearances where the band commemorated the life of Edwin Firth (former Principal Cornet player with Foden's who lost his life serving his country on the 1st June 1918), the story has now reached the National Press.

The Sunday Express pictured Edwin Firth and Mark Wilkinson (holding Edwin's cornet) in their edition on the 5th August (see below)
