2 test selections
No.1 "II Crociato in Egypt"
No.2 "Lohengrin"

Apart from the championship events there was an own choice selection open to all bands ("A": & "B" grade) .in which all 13 attending bands entered.
But a regrettable incident occurred at the conclusion of the Quickstep which had been held earlier in the day .
A bailiff waited on the conductor of the Wellington Waterside Workers Band ,
notifying him that he had the authority to take the band's instruments & as a result the band was unable to compete in the Own Choice Selection, although the Redfern & other bands offered the use of their instruments, the offer was not accepted . It is understood that the step taken arose out of the action taken at Wellington by members of the Waterside' Union who were awarded damages for having been prevented from working on the wharf.
