The Last Post

I prefer the Booty version on the bugle.That does bring a lump to the throat when played on an appropriate occasion.
 
It is an Italian version called "Il silenzio" written in 1965 and obviously based on the "Last Post". I also prefer the bootie version but only when played by a single bugle. I really hate it when 2/3/4 or more try to play it in unison just awful how ever well done.

Isn't this the one the Yanks use too? We had a single bugler do the last post at my Dad's funeral, brilliant, not a dry eye in the place.

Went to another funeral yesterday. Seems to be a regular occurrence these days amongst my contemporaries. After the service a Bugler played 'The Last Post', followed by 'Reveille'. Still brings a lump to the throat.
On hearing 'Reveille' my mind went back to my early days in the RN, a Royal Marine Bugler blasting it out over the Tannoy every morning.

Even my worst enemy could never call me "Anchor face and all for it" I ducked and dived, dodged divisions and was always on missmusters for payment with a pocket full of chitties to cover my arse. But let me hear the Sunset Hymn by the Royals and I'll cry openly without any shame whatsoever
