You can fill a millitary plane with all the deadly instruments of war that it can take - but not - it would seem, with even more deadly instruments, like trombones, drums and trumpets!

Lord Berkeley: To ask why they transported a military band to the Falkland Islands to celebrate the Queen's birthday on 21 April after their musical instruments were removed before take-off; what contribution the band was able to make to the celebrations with...out any instruments; and what were the costs of such personnel transport to and from the UK

John King: Comments:
Apparently, the reason musical instruments cannot be taken as hand luggage is because of terrorism. But this was not a civilian flight - it was the ARMY.

Was there a weight problem? 20 men + sidearms against 20 men with brass instruments??? I can't see there would be much difference. Sounds typical MoD cock-up.Perhaps ther were supplied kazoos on arrival.

My washboard has long been classifed as a deadly weapon!

As musicians couldn't they at least whistle? That theme from "The Bridge Over the River Kwai" comes to mind.

See here - jolly good music!
