    Tonight at the Salvation Army Hall in Cradley Heath members of The Shirley Band joined with the Cradley Heath Citadel Band and the choir "Voices in Harmony" to commemorate and reflect on those who lost their lives in armed conflict. Whilst not as grand an event as that which takes place in the Albert Hall, it was a moving and memorable event, made extra special by the rendition of the Last Post on a 1914 vintage bugle and a masterful composition by David Bishop-Rowe, "Remembrance", featuring within it Laurence Binyon's poem "For The Fallen" arranged for choir. It was a great privilege to have taken part and use my own, albeit limited, ability to contribute and commemorate.
