    The name and the explanation are on the main site of the 3rd East Kent regiment; I phoned the guy and got extra information. However, tehre is a suspicion that the George Porter named on the cornet may be a now defunct music shop of that name...

    There's a Henry Porter, drum maker in Aldershot from the 1800's. Maybe there's a family link?

    Im pretty sure this is it:-

    Geo Potter & Co, London, 1860-1939

    George Potter was the grandson of Samuel Potter who was a drum, brass and woodwind maker starting in 1815. He was succeeded by Henry, father of George.

    George established his business in Aldershot in 1860 at High St, 1868 at Bank St, and by 1930 at Potters Corner. The business lasted until 1939
