The Band of HM Royal Marines Service Buglers have recommenced their dedicated service of providing musical support at funerals to serving and former members of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines.

And whilst the Buglers of the HM Royal Marines are often seen and heard leading the National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph, London during the November ceremonies, the Corps of Drums support between 250-300 funerals per year both in the UK and abroad.

Priority

The restrictions of COVID lockdown have resulted in the Bands of HM Royal Marines having limited opportunity to perform, yet every effort has been made to ensure that funeral services remain a priority.

Cpl Bugler Kimberley Hare (above) recently had the honour of playing at the funeral of Dame Vera Lynn and told 4BR: "It was an honour to be able to perform at the funeral.

She will forever be an inspiration to the Armed Forces community and I was honoured to pay my respects to her on behalf of the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force."
