Description

This 3 x CD recording of over 380 Trumpet and Bugle calls includes all the calls listed in the 1966 Army publication as well as the special Naval calls listed in the 'Bugler's Handbook for Royal Marines' plus the Royal Air Force that remain in common usage.

Before the electronic information age, passing information between large formations of troops was a daunting and sometimes confusing task. Historically, flags, bugles, drums, and other loud musical instruments were used for clear communication in the noise and confusion of a battlefield. Bugle calls are short and easy to remember, and can be heard over a long distance conveying an instruction to "Fall In", "Retreat", or "Action" as well as mark key points in the day such as 'Reveille' and 'Sunset'.

Also included, at the end of CD1, are selected American Infantry Bugle Calls that date back to the time of the American Civil War; calls that reflect the influence of both the French and British traditions. Finally at the end of CD3 there are three options of Last Post followed by two minutes silence before Reveille.

These calls may be helpful for those needing these calls for formal occasions and funerals. Whether for reasons of nostalgia or for reasons of research, these recordings provide a comprehensive catalogue of a time before electronics changed communications in the military forever.
