1969-76 (Norman Bearcroft)
After an absence of more than 50 years, it is interesting to note that the possibility of reforming a Canadian Staff Band
was discussed on the waters of the Atlantic as Major Norman Bearcroft and his
wife, Jill, made their way to Canada in 1968.
Norman had been appointed as Territorial Music Secretary, and following a number of interviews with the Territorial Commander, Commissioner Clarence Wiseman, the concept soon became a reality.
