This old recording might be of interest to the likes of Eddie. A Waterloo bugle carried at the Charge of the Light Brigade, what ever next...

Bungling ? Yes that my style!

I have come across this recording before and for an old guy Lanfrey was still one hell of a Trumpeter !! ( As was often the case with Cavalry field calls he is actually sounding the call on a Bugle  - which is possibly the one still on display in the Household cavalry museum in Whitehall)

He sounds walk, trot,  gallop,  and finally the Charge. Fans of the film Waterloo (Bondarchuk)  may recognise this sequence of calls as those used at the beginning of the charge of the Scots Greys.
