Another great picture Ian, and such a fun one. There's Ken Pollitt W&D Euphonium player at the back of the drum.

Ian, that's Alan just as i remember him, seems like yesterday. In fact it's probably 36yrs ago. I know i went over to Haigh band with Alan in about '72. I hope there are more photo's to come. I've actually baby sat Alison when we where on holiday in Wales

I remember Alan Mason when he played trombone with us in Skelmersdale Prize band, must have been circa 1960's.
He was a fantastic player,especially at concerts when he would stand up and play solos without music.
Those were the days.
Nice to see a picture of him.
Thanks for putting it on.
