The Band at Fayid 1954
(From Ian Wright -February 2006)


I was the Stage Electrician when the band performed at 3RHA Base in Fayid in 1954.
I was captivated by the trumpet player. She had an unusual name, I believe it was
Robey Buckely, or something similar.

I am not sure if she was a regular band member or a guest performer. I had a photo for many
years but seem to have mislaid it.
Can you refresh my mind on this matter?

They were a great band, we loved every minute of the show.

It didn't hurt that they were all good looking girls either!!

Thanks for your website. Ian Wright ex-REME.
