Yeadon Old Prize Band - a Memory of Yeadon.

My brother Arthur 2 years my junior and my father Ernest Carter (dec'd 1963)all played for many years with Yeadon old prize band.  We practiced 2 times a week in the old British Legion hut up behind the Yeadon town hall.  Many's the time we ALL had to run to catch the West Yorkshire bus 10pm from Otley to get us to Ravenscliffe Avenue so we could sleep and not be too tired for school the next day.  My first date was with a girl from Yeadon, Dorothy Akers, I was 12/13 years old.  Those were the days.
