Officer peals

Officer peals

In 1919 there were several attempts to ring peals with officer-only bands. The first of these was at Putney on 15 March 1919 when 8 officers rang Kent Treble Bob Major successfully. Then at South Croydon on 3 May 1919 Grandsire Caters was rung by 10 officers, although this was apparently completed successfully it was soon realised that the composition was false so it was not a valid peal. A further 10 bell peal of Grandsire Caters with a band of officers was rung at South Croydon on 9 July 1919 to mark the formal peace following the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. On that occasion Reeves was replaced by Lieutenant Frederick White of the King's (Liverpool) Regiment.
