Our Music (Recordings)

This page is intended to be both a place to come and listen to recordings made by individual and combined bands of the Australian Army Band Corps, who many of our association have been a part of, and somewhere for the musicians to publish their own compositions.

The process as most will know is to create a wave file or an mp3, attach it to an email and send it to Stu Colhoun or the webmaster, it will then be uploaded to the site.  It will enhance the page if the music is accompanied by a short story or explanation on the origin of the music.

Four pieces recorded by the Royal Australian Armoured Corps Band in 1966.
