The Band and Bugles of The Rifles
The Band and Bugles of The Rifles are based in Sir John Moore Barracks, Winchester, in Hampshire. It is a unique military band that is defined by traditions dating back over 200 years, including the use of the silver bugle and the distinctly fast marching speed of 140 paces per minute.
The musicians within the Band are members of the Corps of Army Music, which assigns soldiers to Winchester as part of their career development. The Buglers that perform and march in front of the Band are Riflemen drawn from across 1-5 RIFLES that are trained to blow the bugle and march in the traditional Rifle Regiment fashion – including the unique and world famous ‘Double’.
The Band and Bugles of The Rifles perform worldwide and across the UK, often stealing the show because of their unique dress, style and traditions.
