I am trying to trace an old colleague from the early 1980s in Kent. Brian Gamblen, who I believe lives in North Walsham. Any suggestions as to how I can trace him? Thank you. Jeremy

Hi.I am looking for information of any sort on a Frederick Gee - my Grandad.Born probably 1880s. I believe he was a Chimney sweep,footballer and referee.Also a Part time Fireman-family history suggests he used the fire appliance currently in Bressingham museum. I am told he was well respected and had a ceremonial funeral organised/attended by the Fire Brigade of the time. Married to Alice and had at least 14 children !! Any information at all would be gratefully accepted. Thankyou Regards Alan (Grandson)

I am a brass band historian and am researching the 'lost' village and town bands of Norfolk in preparation for my third book on the subject (I have already published books about bands in Essex and Suffolk) In the late 19th Century there were estimated to be 30,000 bands in the UK. Nearly every village had one, towns had several, cities had dozens. The village brass band was an important aspect of rural life and played for fetes, church festivals, funerals and, of course, Christmas carolling. Today there are around 3,000 so someone, somewhere has an awful lot of instruments, uniforms and memories tucked away in cupboards and attics. I have already found approximately 60 villages in Norfolk that used to have a band but I am convinced that there are many dozens more still to be found and their histories collated. My object in contacting you is twofold. To ask if North Walsham had a brass band and to ask if the town has a local newpaper or Newsletter circulated to surrounding villages that I could contact to ask the same questions about any 'lost' village bands. To establish bona fides you may wish to visit my website at where you will find a short biog and details of my books and the many talks I give all over East Anglia. I would be happy to give a talk on 'lost' bands to any local history group, U3A, WI, Rotary, Probus and, especially for the centenary of WW1, British Legion branches. Thanks for your time in reading this email and I look forward to hearing from you at your convenience. David Cawdell - 01379 668821 -
