Bugler

Wells Cemetery, November 2016

Since Richard was a teenager he has had the honour of playing the Last Post for his local community.  In 2011 he was awarded with a Certificate of Appreciation for his fourteen years of service and in 2014 he was interviewed on BBC Radio Bristol as part of the centenary of the First World War programme and a recording was broadcast.

A photograph is available from the WWI centenary by following this link but cannot be published here for copyright reasons. There are also a number of more recent photographs here.

In recent years Richard has played bugle calls professionally at funeral or burial services in Somerset and Bristol. For those with a military background this can add a tasteful, personal touch to a service to respect this significant part of somebody’s life.

Sound clips are going to be added shortly – Thank you for your patience.
