Some First World War clips of marching bands.

London Scottish Regiment at an unspecified time during WW1. No sound!

Massed Guards Band In St James’s Park (1917) who don’t look that much different to what you might see today!

The date is unspecified but possibly some sort of recruitment parade.

This clip just popped up in the Youtube sidebar.

As did this clip from the long running  (1971 – 1975) TV series “Upstairs Downstairs”.

There can’t have been a single family that wasn’t affected by the First World War. These are the stories of some of the people in my family history during that era.

I wonder what will happen when the commemoration ends later this year. Will the First World War be put back onto the selves of history or will we eventually learn some lessons from the carnage.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
