Can you solve the musical mystery on one of the Commission’s headstones?

We have been chatting with the CWGC about this today. I am on a mission now, will visit the grave tomorrow and report back......

Second Lieutenant Hugh Gordon Langton is the only casualty commemorated by the Commission with a piece of music as the personal inscription on his headstone. But what is the tune? Over the years, there has been much debate about the origin of the notes with many suggesting they could be from the Ame...

World War One Military Bands

Whilst looking for something online just now, I found this, and found it fascinating. Does anyone else have any knowledge which might help the owner of this webpage:

Being a musician I am always very pleased to see any photos of Military Bands. I’ve played in Brass Bands, Big Bands, Orchestras, Small combos and taught quite a few kids to play wind instruments. One of the biggest delights I find, is hearing and watching a military band playing. The Edinburgh M....

The Army musicians will be excelling at what they do so brilliantly.

The Household Division

The Army musicians will be excelling at what they do so brilliantly.

A programme of rousing military and contemporary music will be performed by the finest muscians of the world renowned Bands of the Household Division.

Set on the historic Horse Guards Parade, against the magnificent backdrop of St James’s Park, The Massed Bands of The Foot Guards will be supported by The Mounted Band of the Household Cavalry, The Pipes and Drums of the Scots Guards, The Drums and Pipes of the Irish Guards, the Corp of Drums of the Coldstream and Irish Guards, the Musical Ride of the Household Cavalry and the Royal Choral Society.

This year’s guests performers The Band and Pipes of the United Arab Emirates and The United States Army Europe Band and Chorus will join us in this annual event.

This year’s theme is of co-operation. Titled ‘Alliance of the Free’, Beating Retreat will have over six hundred musicans and is one of London’s must-see events.

The Household Division Beating Retreat, a traditional musical
extravaganza, showcases the very best of British military music, ceremonial and pageantry in the heart of London.

Stirring music, precision drill, horsemanship, cannon fire, lights and fireworks will combine in an unforgettable evening of music, celebrating British Army endeavour.

Prince George, 2nd Duke of Cambridge: Royal rebel who gave William his title

A fascinating article about the founder of Kneller Hall. What a shame we don’t get a mention.

When the Duke of Cambridge was born he was destined to be king. Later things went wrong, not least when he insisted on marrying for love. The Queen did not approve of the woman he chose — she was...

I went to see the wonderful production of ‘Iolanthe’ at ENO last night. Reading the programme, I see that Sir Arthur Sullivan’s father ‘was a military bandmaster’. Does anyone know of which band, I wonder?
