Description : This artefact is a brass bugle used in the Church Lad's Brigade band in the early 20th century. The Bugle has been constructed by drawing and coiling brass tubing. The bugle has a brass collar surrounding the tubing just under the bell. Likewise there is a decorative brass plate affixed to the curve adjacent to the mouth piece. The Bell of the bugle is sheeted in a higher quality brass, and bears the marker's mark just above the sheeting. The mark is the company name "Tremier," which has been engrave in a stylised script under which has been stamped "made in England." Wrapped around the body of the bugle, where the hand would rest is a tri coloured tasselled cord of blue; yellow; and red, the colours of the CLB.
Commentaires : Like the sports program, the Church Lad's Brigade band has become one of the cornerstones of the organization, one in which much pride has been placed. The first CLB band was formed in 1894 two years after the formation of the organization. Formed by Mr. Joseph Shea, its original manifestation was as a tin whistle band. The band practiced in the old East End butterine factory near St. Joseph's church. Many of the early members recalled A Life on the Ocean Wave and We Won't Get Home Until Morning as being the most popular songs in the bands early repertoire. Shortly thereafter under the tutelage of Mr. Shea, the band evolved into a fife and drum band. The early fifes were recorded at a cost of one dollar and twenty cents each. The band slowly expanded with the addition of 3 piccolos, cymbals, and a base drum. At this time the well respected music professor David Bennett took over as Band Master. Under Band Master Bennett the band began to play for the Brigade's parade marches. The Addition of a number of brass instruments in 1898 marked the beginning of a full-fledged band. In 1899 Lieutenant N. Snow was appointed regimental Band Master. Lieut. Snow was considered by the members of the CLB to be an extremely hard working officer who significantly raised the standards of the band. Under his guidance the band was continually requested to make appearances at local functions. The band continued to grow and gain in popularity and in 1907 traveled to Ottawa to compete for the Earl Grey Governor General's Prize. The band placed second in the competition. Lieut. Snow resigned his post as Band Master in 1912 after 13 years of service. In 1924 the Band played at the unveiling of the National War Memorial by Field-Marshal Earl Haig in St. John's. The Band played for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police centennial anniversary visit in 1978, and again a few years later for the papal visit. The CLB band continues to carry on the strong music tradition set down by early members of the organisation, by performing at a number of annual prestigious events in St. John's, such as Remembrance Day celebrations, the Lieutenant Governors Garden Party, and the Royal St. John's Regatta.
