PLAN COMMENDED

EX-SERVICEMEN'S BAND

"Rehabilitation to be full and complete means far more than a job, a wage and a home. After working hours the social aspect and comradeship, particularly amongst bandsmen, with liie enthusiasm in team work under good leadership, should be encouraged in every sensible way." This is an extract from a letter received by Auckland R.S.A. from Mr. H. J. Emrys, advertising agent, containing a cheque for £20 towards the proposal to form a full -military band from ex-servicemen. It was read to the quarterly meeting of Auckland R.S.A. by the president, Mr. A. P. Postlewaite, and received with warm applause. Mr. Emrys went on to express his confidence that there would be found considerable talent amongst ex-servicemen, and said he had also no doubt that there were many splendid voices to form a male voice choir. With soloists, instrumentalists, vocal and variety ability, the formation of a high-class entertainment company should be accomplished without much difficulty. Mr. Postlewaite, in expressing grateful thanks to Mr. Emrys for his generous gift, stated that progress was being made in regard to the formation of a military band and the other suggestions made by Mr. Emrys would receive attention.
