Notes

Caution is needed in keeping this entry separate from entries for Swindon Youth, which was a band from which this band was an offshoot. That band competed in youth contests during the same period, which this band was also using the name Swindon Youth, and often with the same conductors. Entries prior to 1982 belong to that band, as do entries in youth contests thereafter. Entries in adult contests probably belong to Swindon Brass.
