Sounds like it could have been Paul. Though I'm not sure about the harmonica. 

I second trcanberra's welcome-aboard.

Well, I know that John does harmonica for a little bit on Love Me Do , but that's all I really can remember at the moment

@Bongo that's what I thought too. Someone from another site did quite a bit of research regarding instruments George played. This is the list they came up with:

 1.guitar
2.sitar
3.4-string guitar
4.bass guitar
5.arp bass
6.violin
7.tamboura
8.dobro
9.swordmandel
10.tabla
11.organ
12.piano
13.Moog synthesizer
14.harmonica
15.autoharp
16.glockenspiel
17.vibraphone
18.xylophone
19.claves
20.African drum
21.conga drum
22.tympani
23.ukulele
24.mandolin
25.marimba
26.Jai-Tarang

I don't see trumpet though. Could it be #27?

Best bets (if it wasn't a guest musician for stuff like the trumpets):

John on harmonica
Paul or John on organ
Paul on trumpet
Could be any on tambourine but I want to guess Ringo most often.

Now for fun:

Thanks @Mr. Kite, that's proof enough for me. I'm adding trumpet to the list!

I like how Martha and the people in back are gazing mouth open at Paul's spectacular trumpet playing
