“The Last Post”

No! This is not my last post. “The Last post” is a bugle call played at Military Ceremonies in Commonwealth countries. It is similar to the US bugle call “Taps”.

It can bring tears to some eyes and lumps in the throats of those who make a stirling effort to avoid the tears.

There is a new version that you simply must hear. It is played by an Aussie violinist Rachel Bostock. Go on line and check out other songs/tunes that Rachel has played.

But here is her “Last Post” on violin.
