History and use
This trophy was won by the Ipswich Railway Band at a competition sponsored by the Daily Mail newspaper at a Championship Carnival in 1923.
The Ipswich Railway Band was established in 1913, receiving a subsidy of £100 from the Commissioner of Queensland Railways to assist with buying instruments. It existed for only 21 years, but during that time, it reached a high standard and was a source of pride for both the Ipswich Railway Workshops and the Ipswich community.
