NB: That was the year of the great Welsh strike, when Wales was in dispute with the Nationals. They did hold their own contest in Treorchy instead and with the exception of the Cory Band, no other Welsh regional band appeared at the National Finals (although some North Wales bands who competed at the North West did).
