From Melbourne Australia, the Footscray-Yarraville City Band will perform a concert with a specially commissioned work commemorating the untold stories of the Great War.
In 2013 the band discovered, in their store room, a WW1 bass drum which had been out of use and stored since the 1960s. On the inside of this drum there are five inscriptions written by WW1 soldiers.
The inscriptions indicate the drum was used at the Australian training camps at Fovant and Sutton Veny on Salisbury Plain, UK, during WW1.
The drum will be played during Monday's concert here in Southwark.
