Date:1931

Description:At this time the band were busily engaged around the coast as well as Southern and Northern Command Tattoos, also broadcasted from the Midland Regional .

The Regiment moved from Lichfield in 1932 to Tournay Barracks, Aldershot, which proved to be a transisional period of changing from horse drawn transport to one of mechanisation and the traditional 'D' Machine Gun company (vickers) was fazed out, replaced by Bren Gun carriers, motorised transport.
