Thomas Holland Roberts.

Here's a photo. of me in borrowed uniform taken at the Barracks, Caernarfon with part of my drum collection. I hand painted
all the drums. I've carried out commissions for the Royal Welch Fusiliers, the Parachute Regiment and others.
 

 

 

This photo. shows me and Goat Major Colour Sergeant Norman Pritchard at the Barracks, Caernarfon.
The two Tenor drums were commissioned by the RWF (Hightown Barracks Wrexham) as a presentation 
to Brigadier Riley who had commanded the RWF in Bosnia.

Brig. Riley requested that the drum hoops be painted in the 'Crimea' pattern ~ (Red and Blue triangles)
as opposed to the standard Red, White (wavy line) and Blue ordnance pattern.
The solid silver memorial drums in Caernarfon Castle have the 'Crimea' hoops.

The drum on top of the two tenor drums is the one I painted for the Regiments Tercentenary celebrations.

With reference to the photo. of me and Norman with the presentation drums for Brig. Riley.

I painted the drum I am carrying for the RWF Tercentenary celebrations.
The rope tension drum on the ground is one of the original drums issued to the 6th/7th Bn. in 1956.
