  • SCENES AT WATERLOO PART 1 1914 - 1918. The reason the Pathe cataloguer has noted a 'massive band' is due to their being four Foot Guards' bands leading the Zouave band out of Waterloo Station. Every time a row of trombones passes that is another band. The bands are in Khaki Service Dress, so it is difficult to identify them. If they came out in regimental order then they should read Grenadier, Coldstream, Scots and Irish Guards. When foreign bands arrived as 'guests' of the British nation during World War One, protocol decreed that our bands should play them through the streets of the capital, so the Zouave band is the one at the rear of the lengthy contingent that isn't playing. Seeing there are four Guards' bands present, it (may) date the film to pre March 1915-16...as the Welsh Guards' band didn't come into existence until after those dates.

  • SCENES AT WATERLOO PART 1 1914 - 1918. Further research has found a stills photograph on the 'Getty Images' website of the visit of the Zouave band during World War One. The date given on the site was July 1918.
