Frank Hart from Originally Rossington: I remember back in the mid fifties sitting at the back during a St. George's day parade changing the carrying hook on my Scout drum with a penknife during the service. What had happened, just before we got to church I ripped the drum skin with the drumstick. I just managed to repair it before the service ended. I might add it was a bit awkward playing on the snare side on the way back, but it didn't sound too bad, just a bit hollow. Happy days.
Regards to all Scouts from Rossington Frank.
