The chapter deals with the relationship between the military and the world of amateur music in the second half of the nineteenth century. Two related topics are especially prominent: the rise of the amateur brass band movement and the formation of the Rifle Volunteer movement in 1859. A remarkable story is unveiled which shows how funding intended for the defence of the country was actually subverted to support amateur bands.
