    John Brush came to see me at Launceston a few years before he died. I let him have my collection of banding programes which he copied and returned. As I am getting older I want to pass these items on to an archive where they can be kept safe and used by researchers into Cornish band history. Could you give me an idea of how to proceed and what facilities are available for safe keeping.

      Hello Michael,

      The Cornish National Music Archive will be pleased to receive these so that the contents can be incorporated into its contest records. Following this, and with your permission, they will be deposited at Kresen Kernow (Cornish Records Office) which will accept them providing they are not already included in their archive. Tony Mansell
