Hammersmith Borough Band

About nine years ago I was contacted by Heather Campbell, who wanted some information about her Grandfather, A.E. Ashcroft, who had been the Musical Director of the Hammersmith Borough Band. After my recent piece on Home Guard brass bands, I was reminded of her story, as Hammersmith Borough Band had served with the Home Guard during WW2. The band went through several manifestations between 1927 and the late 1970’s, which I have tried to document with the available information and photographs, some of which were kindly provided by Heather.
