Whit Monday Sports, Enfield Town Park: The 1st and 3rd Enfield Bugle Bands take part.

Above is a picture taken in Enfield Town Park in June 1919. It shows the presentation of the bugles to the all clear Buglers of the First World War. They provided calls to the residents of Enfield for the airship raids over Enfield by the Germans. Enfield was a particular target due to the Enfield Small Arms factory which produced the famous Lee-Enfield 303 rifles.
The all clear buglers were made up of members of the 1st and 3rd Enfield Companies. The Chairman of the District Council, Mr Spencer-Hill MA JP, is the man presenting the bugles as a token of appreciation to the boys for their service during the War.
