It is not uncommon for families to become prominent in Salvation Army corps for several generations. At the beginning of the 20th Century, the Doe family were not only significant in Hendon Corps but also ran a successful butcher's business. Little could they know that, by advertising in the Salvation Army press for a master butcher, they would be paving the way for another family to play a unique role in the corps for over 100 years! The successful applicant was Fred H Cobb whose leadership qualities were recognised quickly with his appointment as Bandmaster in 1913, a position he held until retirement in 1947.
Although this CD doesn't feature Fred Cobb in any direct way, his personal and Christian qualities have been handed down through the family and have motivated subsequent generations of Cobbs into becoming outstanding musicians.
