To all those bands partaking in Remembrance parades etc. today, I hope it went well for you and I hope the weather was kind to those that had to march outdoors (like Fulham BB!). I must admit, I don't miss it. Not because I dislike the Remembrance services as a concept, but I invariably got press-ganged into playing Last Post and Reveille in years gone by, and although you don't have to worry about pressing down a single valve, I've always found those occasions extremely nerve-wracking, knowing (albeit to a limited degree) what it means to the veterans and their families that served in the war. I know it meant something to my former trumpet teacher at school Clifford Haines as we spent a whole hour's lesson on it (more 'interpretation' than 'not splitting'!) before my 'debut' Last Post many years ago.
