7th Surrey Volunteers et al. in London - 1862

from Evidence of Major Beresford of the 7th Surrey Volunteers, page 655:

Nothing tends to bring the men so much together as a band, and when it plays on the parade ground, the members come there and bring their friends with them and they walk about there just as well as they could in a park.
