Nine times in ten years they were heralded as the National Scout Supreme Champions and have won hundreds of prizes in open competitions throughout the country.

They have appeared on the cinema screen

in feature movies, television, radio, professional

theatre, cabaret and on long playing records being recognised for their refreshing originality in so much of what they do. Extensive travelling and foreign tours in Europe have increased their following and many are the youth bands of today who watch them closely for new ideas to copy. Numerous bands based on their formula have been launched not only in England but in South Africa, Canada, Holland, Channel Isles and Australia.
