The last Post

  • One iconic part of this service is The Last Post,
  • Played before the silence.
  • This is either played on the bugle or trumpet
  • Its origins date back to the 1790s, when the call would be sounded at the end of the day in camp
  • It signalled to the soldiers that camp was safe for the night,
  • In the 1850s, The Last Post began being used in a different way.
  • If there were no military band members available during overseas combat, The Last Post would be played when soldiers died by the regimental bugler.
  • It is used in funerals to indicate that the soldier has gone to his final rest 
  • Remembrance Day in the Commonwealth of Nations
