bugle,

brass wind musical instrument consisting of a conical tube coiled once upon itself, capable of producing five or six harmonics. It is usually in G or B flat. Its principal use is for military and naval bugle calls, such as taps and reveille, and, in earlier times, for hunting calls. In the early 19th cent., keyed bugles were made in order to obtain a complete scale.

The Old Soldier An old man stood before the Cenotaph His head was bare and bowed A row of medals adorned his chest An old soldier amongst the crowd The tears coursed down his cheeks As the bugle made its plaintive call And his mind was back in time When he watched his comrades fall Not a blade of grass in sight Just a few stumps of trees And the constant rain fell week after week Rain without reprieve Over the top they went Horses and men disappeared in the mud Barbed wire, rats and rotting corpses And the never-ending stench of blood In the senseless slaughter And the incessant rain He wondered was it worth it And did he fight in vain?
