April 1937

My father on drums, my uncle Jan on clarinet.

And there was another group my father played in after The Merry Mooches. "Piet Overdijk en zijn Ritmische Spelers".

In the army and during the mobilization: these photographs are from 1939 (L) and 1935 (R)

My father sometimes played with an orchestra in an amateur-performance of a show called "Troost" (meaning "Comfort" - 1942). My father playing drums and timpani here.
