Instruments of Battle

The Fighting Drummers and Buglers of the British Army from the Late 17th Century to the Present Day

James Tanner

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.
