Sunday Bandstand 6 December 2015

This week's photograph is Stanley Smith-Masters who was born in London on the 9 May 1903 and died in Maidenhead on the 19 December 1984 - I doubt whether there is a brass band anywhere that has not got a composition or arrangement of his in its band music library.... You may know him better as Edrich Siebert his pen name.
