Not only did Geordie provide us with a cracking interview, he went on to play the bugle for us when Twickenham school came to visit Kneller Hall. And he had a second drilling from the pupils. Thanks Geordie.

Geordie Thomson

Geordie Thomson a lad with a military music background got ‘the music bug’ playing in the local town band alongside his Dad and his uncle. Offered a music bursary to university he turned that down to join up. In this film he speaks of his regrets of not getting ‘sand in his boots’ but the pleasure he got from the music, and the friends, he made in the Army.
