WO2 (BSM) Steve Walkley

A native of Gloucester, Steve enlisted into the Regular Army in 1970 as a Junior Soldier. He joined the Staff Band of The Royal Corps of Signals in Catterick Camp, Yorkshire, as a Cornetist but soon changed to the Trombone.
He attended the pupils course at Kneller Hall from 1970-1971, achieving 3rd prize in the Cousin's Memorial Competition and was a prizewinner in the Cassel's Competition.
On returning to the Royal Signals Band he was appointed principal trombonist, remaining in this position until transferring to the Regimental Band of Her Majesty's Irish Guards in 1975.
At the end of 1976 Steve entered the brass band world where he enjoyed a successful and distinguished "career" for some 20 years, mostly as principal trombonist with the Sun Life and Fairey Bands. He developed an international reputation as a soloist, appearing with various bands in a number countries, the highlight of which was an invitation to represent Great Britain in the "Brass Musician of the Year" Competition in Auckland, New Zealand in 1988, where he emerged as runner up. He also enjoyed some success in teaching activities, including appointments as trombone tutor for the Band Musicianship Course at Salford College and to the National Youth Brass Band of Switzerland.
In 1995 Steve left the intensely competitive world of championship brass bands and returned to Military Music. He joined the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars Band of the Royal Wessex Yeomanry, transferring to the Kohima Band (PWRR) on his relocation to Kent in 1996.
In civilian life Steve is a Commercial Officer within the Civil Service.
