Notes

Originally the Waltham St. Lawrence band, in 1950 this band renamed itself "East Berks", and subsequently relocated to Reading. In 1957 <a href="https://brassbandresults.co.uk/bands/waltham-st-lawrence-silver-band/">a replacement Waltham St. Lawrence band</a> was launched, that still exists.
