Fidler On The March


This is an interesting biography of the only military musician to be knighted Lt Col Sir Vivian Dunn KCVO OBE FRAM RM. Despite a few minor factual errors this biography provides an interesting glimpse into his services to four Monarchs and life onboard four different Royal Yachts namely Victoria and Albert, Vanguard, Gothic and Britannia. It also covers many other aspects of his life such as his involvement in numerous ceremonial events such as the Tercentenary of the Royal Marines. A good selection of B/W photographs depicting both his private and public life help to enhance this account as do the various contributions from those who knew Sir Vivian
