Chislet Colliery Band. The letter IS from Bert Heckley and his son John. Both known to me. The band photo is at the Black Horse in Hersden, Kent Nr Canterbury, now a Chinese restaurant. The Chislet Band was made up mostly of Heckleys and Hodgsons. I joined in 1951 at twelve years old. Alan Hodgson.
