Notes

What a mess this one is - if one of you has a month or two to waste try working this one out. I have deduced that we have two or three entirely different bands here that also relate to Hucknall Gospel Temperance. Here goes - Hucknall Gospel Temperance we have 1/12/1888 conducted by S.Taylor and John Gladney until 1903. Often only recorded as Hucknall Temperance. Now for the crunch - We have the first results for Excelsior as 18/8/1874 and 10/8/1876 as Hucknall Torkard. From 30/6/1888 we have results as Hucknall Temperance to 15/2/1890 when we have Hucknall Excelsior Temperance for one result. We then have 6 results for Hucknall Temperance until 21/11/1891 when we have both bands at Derby contest. We have at least 7 other occasions where both bands competed against each other - Excelsior conducted by D.Godfrey, C.Godfrey (obviously printers error or similar)John Cupit and Alex Owen. The Temperance conducted by S.Taylor and J.Gladney. On 16/5/1903 at Codnor we suddenly have Hucknall Silver and also at Nottingham 25/5/1904. is this a new band or a name change for the Temperance. The name Hucknall Torkard now appears a few times (could this be another name for the Temperance. Both Torkard and Excelsior are at Butlins 9/9/1933. Just to put the cat amongst the pigeons we have 8/7/1899 at Belle Vue - Hucknall Torkard Excelsior Temperance. DAVE HOLLAND
