When there were dinner and dances at the Town Hall in Chatham the organizers would request a young Royal Marine bugle boy -drummer to play. The original photo had another young Marine dressed in 17th century Marine uniform.This is the photo of Sam Mchaffey who was about 14yrs of age, about 1925. He lived in Old Brompton all his life and was stationed at Chatham Royal Marine Barracks (now Medway Council offices).
