      VFW Nationals August 24, 1964 Cleveland Ohio. Bob has one of the original drum corps mellophones (serial # 0004) manufactured for Dom Del Ra by the Whalley Royce Co. of Toronto Canada. Dom invented the horn and ordered six of them made from his prototype – 3 for the Cavaliers and 3 for the Interstatesmen. The I-Men used the horns first in competition, but this was the first time the mellophone was played in a national drum corps competition. The judges thought they were French Horns out of key.
