Prince Alexander of Teck
Prince Alexander of Teck (1874-1957), later Earl of Athlone, brother of Queen Mary, who had recently been promoted to the rank of Brigadier-General on General Staff. The Bystander comments that he has earned his promotion, unlike members of the German royal family who, it suggests, 'would probably by now be in command of an Army Corps at the very least.'

LCC-LFB Brigade marching band at the Annual Review
The Fire Brigade Band performing at the 1929 Annual Review in Victoria Park, East London. Formed after the First World War, the Brigade had an outstanding band which consisted entirely of serving London firemen, all of whom were talented musicians. Many had played in a band during their naval or military service. Sadly the Band's day came to an end in the early 1970s when funding from the Greater London Council was withdrawn.
