SCLI Band
Whats New in the Band/Bugles Section

Due to the sheer size of the pages and the number of images, we are rebuilding the site so that this will become the index page for Band/Bugles. The galleries will now have their own pages, however there is still interesting material here before you go to the galleries.

"Queen & Prince" by Major Young.

This march was composed for the Somerset and Cornwall Light Infantry by Major Alfred Young, then Director of Music of the Royal Signals, who had been the battalion bandmaster. It is technically difficult, has been played rarely and so is little known. It shows how the Band and Bugles complement each other perfectly.

Not just Musicians

The Band and Bugles are not just ceremonial soldiers, enlisted only as musicians. All bandsmen are trained as medical assistants, which role they would fill in war, and the Bugle Platoon is a fully operational rifle platoon. It has been employed as such, on active service, in the recent past.

Trevor Nottingham was the first contributor to this page and has sent a picture of the Laying up of the Colours at Truro Cathedral, the SCLI Band Berlin and the Parade Juni Strasse Berlin.

Pictures below are from Trevor Nottingham, Phil Ashworth, John Pover and LI Som.Office.
