"The First regiment of Royal Tower Hamlets Militia March & Quick-step, as oerformed by the Regimental Band... Composed and Dedicated (by Permission) to Colonel Beaufoy & the Officers of the Regiment, by their most humble Servant Wm. Liquorish, Master of the Band. London." c.1796.

Military bands and their music proliferated during the decades when invasion by Napoleon was feared (1790 - 1810). A happy consequence seems to have been that few village "West Gallery" bands lacked a serpent player, until the 1840s.
