Is there a connection?
The Museum has a copy of a 1933 program listing Henry Slatter MSM as the conductor for the Band of the 15th Field Brigade, Canadian Artillery and I have found a photo of Bandmaster Slatter of the 72nd regiment of the Seaforth Highlanders, standing on steps of the Vancouver Courthouse (now the Vancouver Art Gallery), approx 1913. Slatter was the first Seaforth Highlanders of Canada bandmaster. Is this the same person?
The Richmond Olympic Oval opening listed the following, "Vancouver’s artillery band was formally established in 1933 when the Band of 15th Field Brigade, Canadian Artillery was formed under the direction of Capt Henry Slatter M.S.M."
Does anyone have additional information that could link the two? A photo of Henry Slatter in an Artillery uniform?
