The Hospital Band – in need of a kettle drum!

Whilst carrying out further research into the use of Easton Park Mansion as a Red Cross Hospital during WW1, I have found the following article from the Framlingham Weekly News dated 1st April 1916, entitled ‘The Hospital Band’

It makes interesting reading about the instruments used and I wonder who the reviewer was, who stated “It would require an extremely vivid imagination to discover “music” in the weird din created by the Easton band”:
