|History for Couriers
The Couriers were a marching and maneuvering drum corps, formed in 1978 from the Crawley Boys & Girls Brigades in Great Britain.The group had an initial membership of approximately 50 members. |
The corps competed in national band competitions as an E-flat trumpet band until 1980, at which time the transition to G bugles and the corps format came about.
The Couriers were highly successful in the Regional BB Competitions, in which they became champions for five consecutive years. They also took second in one National BB Champions Competition, while winning the percussion and brass captions. The group also competed in DCUK, BCDF, and Winter Guard; they won one BCDF competition in 1985.
The Couriers completely revised their uniforms in 1985, moving away from the old boys and girls brigade uniform.
Membership age dropped off significantly in the late 1980s, and the corps folded in 1988.
