Charles Godfrey Jnr. – the insult that lasted nine years

Charles Godfrey, bandmaster of the Royal Horse Guards, was a prolific arranger of music for brass and military bands, and also adjudicated many brass band contests. However, an unpleasant experience at the British Open contest, in September 1888, led him to refuse to judge any further band contests – a decision which would last until 1897.

See the following article explaining the this unfortunate event in the history of brass band contesting:
