I joined the Boys Brigade because I wanted to get my hands on a bugle to play at The DenI used to love quiet Sunday’s. Almost silent in the mornings. Then the distant thumping of the base drum as The Boys Brigade marched along. It’s all coming back to me now. Where’s my time machine?!
Fast forward, I wasn’t taught to play it properly, couldn’t raise a note, got the mouth piece stuck and couldn’t remove so returned it with a friend saying I couldn’t attend anymore
