The efforts of the executive of Auckland R.S.A. to inaugurate and speed-up social activities with, as a first step, the formation of a musical organisation, are meeting with a good deal of interest and encouragement. The formation of a military band has commenced and the organisers have original themes on which to build a valuable adjunct to the social facilities the club provided. Already a number of versatile artists have offered their services.

There will be scope for every kind of instrumentalist, and it is stressed that what may be considered an early start in no way precludes the men at present overseas or those who have recently returned and are still on the strength, for whom positions will be made.

The band will be built up on the sound principles >of any musical organisation of standing, adaptability, flexibility and versatility. Entertainment to meet all tastes is to be provided, and a conductor has been found who has had an outstanding career, having had practically world-wide experience over a period of 32 years as a professional musician. His qualifications include conrert party, choral and even dance band music.

Choral work and oven dramatic production and variety entertainment have not been forgotten and are included in the future developments being considered.
