Put up your Dukes

Shrewton Silver Band has been leading the way in the presence of a couple of high ranking Dukes...

MARCH PAST

 

Shrewton Silver Band based in a small village based near the world famous World Heritage site of Stonehenge in Wiltshire, certainly enjoyed the recent opportunity to perform for royalty.

The band regularly performs in support of the Regimental Association of the Rifles & Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment based in Salisbury.

March past

With the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Loos and 70th anniversary of the ending of the Second World War being commemorated at Windsor Castle in the presence of Patrons, the Dukes of Edinburgh and Gloucester, the band was invited to lead the march past.

Following a short parade through Windsor (above), there was a service of Commemoration in St George's Chapel.

It was very much a military occasion, so it was a great honour for a civilian band to undertake this high-profile commitmentBand spokesperson.

Great honour

A spokesperson told 4BR: "It was very much a military occasion, so it was a great honour for a civilian band to undertake this high-profile commitment.

It also gave our recently retired army Drum Major the chance to put the band through their paces and sharpen up our deportment and parade work!"

Thanks

Later, the Duke of Edinburgh expressed his appreciation, making this one of the proudest moments in the band's long 150 year history.
