Details

While they have mostly ceremonial uses today, musicians in the British Army traditionally participated in battles, including acting as heralds and enforcers of discipline. James Tanner, a retired Brigadier, details the role of fighting drummers, buglers, and fifers, looking at their deployment, tactics and practical roles; dispelling some common myths; and describing the lives of some of the individual soldiers.
