Peter Hawker in Royal Hospital, Chelsea - 18 June, 1851
from Journal entry, 18 June 1851, page 331:
Got a holiday at last, and had a few hours’ pleasure in hearing the six bands of the Household troops, added to that of the Artillery, at Chelsea Hospital, where a fête was given for a charity. The tremendous crescendos of 350 men playing together, and all the drums added, produced such an effect as I never before heard.
