I was told to take a look at this article. Why is the gentleman playing the Last Post on a two valve trumpet not a Bugle, the use of the Bugle is ONLY way in which the notes of the bugle call "The Last Post " can be truly heard. A valved trumpet does not give a clear recital of the bugle call, or is he not trained to use a Bugle. Anzak is actually ANZAC, meaning Australia, New Zealand Army Corps. Yours G/.

Well done Jim!!!I used to be a member of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment B Coy Garrison Band in Grand Falls in the 1960's and played "The Last Post "many times for official events and for private funerals which the Royal Canadian Legion would request me for.Whe we moved to Nova scotia I joined the Princess Louise Fusiliers Garrison Band and played many more.It was always an honour. The last time I played it was 2 years ago for the Australian's Anzak Day ,here in Halifax with the Australian Naval Officers who were here in Canada on an exchange,and of course there is that great connection between the Royal Newfoundland Regiment and the Aussies because of Gallipoli,and their joint battle honours.Once they found out I was from Newfoundland they thought it would be very appropriate and I agreed.It was special! Great reading about your honours,and performances.!keep up the good work!!! "Better than the Best." Frank Hiscock.
