C Pro C School Band Marching In Civic Parade - 1958
C Pro C School Band in Brandon, Manitoba in 1958.
The above photo depicts the Canadian Provost Corps School Band marching in the Bandon, Manitoba Civic Parade on the 24 May1958. Note the styles worn by the spectators and the model of the cars in the photo.
Those were the days!

The smartness depicted by the Provost Bandsmen was second to none, however; there are some who described their music as being somewhat infamous.
