Bandsman Bradley nearly fit again


March 21, 1916
Bandsman Norman Bradley, the Liverpool halfback who is at Blackpool, write to me: –
“Three of our regiment were presented with D.C.M. medals the other morning. Last night we held a regimental ball at the Tower, and, as you will see by enclosed paragraph, it was a brilliantly-successful function.’ ‘Some band! I haven’t been able to touch a ball since the Blackpool match, but am now nearly fit.”
The enclosure announces that the regimental ball organised by the offices of 3/9th Battalion the King’s (Liverpool) Regiment was a brilliant success. About 1,700 people gathered in the spacious ballroom and enjoyed themselves in dancing to the music of the band of the battalion, in the charge of Bandmaster Cropper. Lieutenant Jackson carried out the arrangements, with the assistance of the officers, and the profit realised by the function is to be devoted to comforts for the men of the battalion.
