The Band and Bugles of the 2nd Bn.
(By, kind permission of Lieut-Colonel L. H. Torin,
Conducted by Mr. F. W. DENNETT
The 2nd Bn. The King's Shropshire Light Infantry is revisiting its home counties of Shropshire and Hereford after having been absent, except for very short periods, for 117 years. Next month new colours are to be presented to the regiment at Shrewsbury by the Duke of York, and the old colours are to be placed in Hereford Cathedral. Mr. F. W. Dennett, the bandmaster, was posted to the regiment in 1931. ' The Shrewsbury Troop ', which is included in the programme, was composed by him specially for the presentation ceremony. The programme for this broadcast will open with the Regimental Call, followed immediately by a bugle flourish. Bugle-Major E. Dixon, who wrote the flourish, was also the composer of the Bugle Flourish for the Aldershot Tattoo in 1929, now used as the interval signal for Radio-Normandie.
