Royal Signals Northern Band

One of 19 Army Reserve Bands based in the United Kingdom.

The bands history goes back to 1952 when the then Commanding Officer received a letter from Durham Territorial Association stating that it was prepared to authorise an additional Band for Teritorial Army Units in the association area.

The band was an amalgamation of three TA bands; the Royal Signals, Royal Engineers and 6 Durham Light Infantry military band. During this period the band was lead by a distinguished series of bandmasters, namely Stan Peacock, Maurice Pope and Derek Farrington. The band was initially based at Brambles Farm TA Centre in Middlesbrough until its move to more suitable practice facilities at Bradford Armoury, Darlington.
