Outside the Newport hospice, the band paid tribute to the continued efforts of Mountbatten's frontline medical staff.

The socially-distanced performance also welcomed five former members (now professional musicians in the Royal Marines Band Service) and Piper John Brodie, from IOW Highland Pipes and Drums.

They played Highland Cathedral and Amazing Grace, and some festive favourites.

Paddy McHugh, who filmed the performance, said: "It was a massive pleasure to be asked by Medina Marching Band to join them outside the home of their chairman, Kev, who has been part of the band for many years."

The band was founded in 1976 by the late George Urry, and Kevin took over running the band in 1997.

The band has taken part in engagements locally, on the mainland, and abroad including Italy, Belgium and Germany.

Jason Penney, Drum Major for Medina Marching Band, said: "Not only do we owe Kevin huge gratitude for providing these opportunities to so many individuals, but he is also responsible for the everlasting friendships and memories remain with us now, as a result of his dedication to the band.”
