The Mansion House, City of London, July 2022
Our band leader, Terry Frost, has been presented with the Order of Mercy.
This is an honour awarded by the ‘League of Mercy’ to reward those who perform voluntary work in various areas of care. For Terry, together with the band, this is for support given to the ‘Not Forgotten Association’ over the past 10 years.
The ‘League of Mercy’ was originally set up in 1899 by Queen Victoria to maintain voluntary hospitals and ‘otherwise relieve sickness and suffering’. The organisation was wound up following the formation of the National Health Service in 1948 but was re-founded in 1999 exactly 100 years after its first establishment. More details can be found at League of Mercy.
