    If you are meaning the longer version, you can find it here.

    Both the Last Post and Reveille (the long version) are in the old Tunes and Toasts books. Roger's version is probably the safest bet though.

    The shorter version is called "Rouse" and is the more popular version. One thing I have just found out that there are meant to be words to the bugle calls as well!

    Just thought I'd drop a line and let you know the Marines' version is the one I use regularly and is accepted by all servicemen. When playing it the 2nd repeat should be played pianissimo and then the last strain played as quickly and clearly as possible. Good luck.

    Personally, I would play the last post then rouse. This is the traditional and most common set you will hear across all occaisions. There is nothing stopping you playing reveille but most people (although it would still be correct) would not recognise it.

    As people have said, you can get the music anywhere on the net for free.

    One advantage of being a bass player, we dont get to do these sort of things, like Last Post, etc!!

    Unless you somehow got yourself into a Cavalry Band in the Army, where all members of the band need to learn to play the Eb cavalry trumpet and any call that are required. . . even the woodwind! God forbid it would ever happen!! *shiver*
