Sound of Light Brigade to be heard again


The bugle heard by British cavalrymen as they thundered into Russian gunfire during the Charge of the Light Brigade is to be sounded once again.

Billy Brittain of the 17th Lancers played the 'Balaklava Bugle' on the morning of the Charge on 25 October 1854.

It is now kept in a museum but will be played during a re-enactment at the British Military Tournament in London's Earl's Court next month.
