Stars and Stripes in Loftus

Stars and Stripes in Loftus

We asked of this image: ”Do you know the occasion, why the band was in Loftus and why were they parading with the flag of America?” Julie Riddiough tells us: ”I’m wondering if this is the Blues and Royals Juvenile Jazz Band that then became Loftus Green Jackets, I was a member when I was about 9/10 years old.” Karen Marsay has advised: ”This is not the Blues and Royals Juvenile Jazz Band, The Green Jackets were the first band in Loftus started up when I was 12 or 13 years old, in 1980’s the Green Jackets split up and the Blues and Royals formed which I joined after leaving the Green Jackets”

    This is not the Blues and Royals Juvenile Jazz Band, The Green Jackets were the first band in Loftus started up when I was 12 or 13 years old, in 1980’s the Green Jackets split up and the Blues and Royals formed which I joined after leaving the Green Jackets
