The Old Comrades are a band of former Royal Marines who still reside in Deal and the surrounding area.

Put together by former Marine Stephen Mission, this impromptu band performed
without rehearsal, many of them sight-reading the music!

A varied programme included music by Rossini, Lloyd Webber, Sousa and Shostakovitch, to name but a few,
ending with the inevitable Regimental March, "A Life on the Ocean Wave"

Despite the lack of rehearsal, the band, under the direction of Phil Hughes LRAM, produced
the kind of professional performance we have come to expect from a Royal Marines ensemble
