The Band and Bugles of The Rifles

The Band and Bugles of The Rifles is a Wind Band based at Sir John Moore Barracks in Winchester, Hampshire, and is part of the Corps of Army Music. The band maintains traditions dating back over 200 years, including the use of the silver bugle and the distinctly fast marching speed - 140 paces per minute.


The Bugle Platoon comprises 20 Infantry soldiers drawn from the five regular Battalions of The Rifles. On completion of an 18 week Bugle Course at the Army School of Ceremonial in Catterick, Yorkshire, Riflemen can be assigned on attachment to The Band and Bugles.

The band performs at a variety of settings providing Sounding Retreats, Freedom Parades, Tattoo's, community events and other diverse engagements. They also perform as a concert band, church band and has several small ensembles.
