Newport Market Army Bands School
Who were Newport Market Army Band School?

The Newport Market Army Training School was founded in 1863 in Newmarket, Soho in order to train destitute boys with musical ability who wanted to join army bands. In 1928 the School was amalgamated with the Shaftesbury Homes and Arethusa, and its name changed to Newport Market Army Band School. My Great Grandfather and Grandmother were Superintendent and Matron of this school from the early 1900's
