About the band
The Band is an Army Reserve Band and provides musical support for various charities and support to the Royal Anglian Regiment its Association.
The first trace of a Band, paid for by public expense, within the Northamptonshire Regiment was recorded in 1798 when Thomas Hewitt of the 48th reported that “approval was given for six boys to be enlisted in the 48th for the band, and at the same time a German bandmaster was engaged”, a normal procedure at this time.
In 1996 the 5th Battalion of the Royal Anglian Regiment was re-roled as 158 (Royal Anglian) Tpt Regt RLC but the regimental Council elected to keep the Band, which were renamed Band of the Royal Anglian Regiment (TA) following the amalgamation of the Regular Royal Anglian bands into the Bands of the Queen’s Division.
