2018 marks 100 years since the end of the First World War and Wolverton Town Band is making a unique contribution to commemorating this major historical event.

 

At 6pm each evening between Friday, 26 October and Saturday, 10 November a member of Wolverton Town Band will play The Last Post in The Square in Wolverton. Everyone is invited to attend and pay their respects.

 

The daily playing began last Friday with Jane Lloyd, the band’s Musical Director, playing The Last Post on cornet and being accompanied by Scott Forrest playing the bagpipes in full Scottish regalia.

 

Jane commented:

“Wolverton Town Band is proud to be commemorating the centenary of the ending of the First World War with this series of Last Posts, and to be paying respect to the sacrifices made by everyone involved: people like Albert French, a sixteen-year-old from Wolverton who was killed in action in 1916, just a week before his seventeenth birthday.”
