Find out more about this item:
Each day Shelley Wilkinson is looking at a different facet of a little copper and brass instrument, the standard army issue bugle. In today’s story Shelley will explain why she refers to a very special call as a kind of bitsa!
The sixth and final bugle story was presented and produced for Radio New Zealand Concert by Shelley Wilkinson. She was helped by Peter Sledmere and Trevor Bremner plus many more friends and colleagues who are listed on the Bugles Stories website.
There’re also more photos there, plus the link to an article about the Defence Force’s plan to have the Last Post bugle call ring out every night from the National War Memorial in Wellington.
This programme was made with assistance from the National Library of New Zealand and especially Alexander Turnbill Library.
