Salamanca Band and Bugles of The Rifles

November 12, 2010 § Leave a comment

The Salamanca Band and Bugles of The Rifles is the South West’s only Territorial Army band. It is named after a regimental battle honour – the Battle of Salamanca on July 22, 1812 during the Peninsula War. The Bands and Bugles of The Rifles uphold traditions dating back as far as the Napoleonic Wars. Instead of using the cumbersome drum, the earliest Riflemen used bugles to communicate orders on the battlefield. The Bands have evolved a unique style of music to match The Rifles faster marching pace of 140 paces to the minute. Besides playing at concerts, the Band and Bugles lead ceremonial military parades, play at military tattoos and festivals and provide music for formal Regimental dinners.
