The Rememberance Day Bugle Project

2015 heralds the start of this project where John aims eventually to supply a bugler to each of the villages around Llandyrnog to commemorate the sacrifice made by British forces in the major conflicts. 3 fine buglers commemorated the event this year in John’s home village of Llandyrnog, all students of his. This was a wonderful event and one that teaches the young player the importance of respect and working together.
