ANZAC Day Buglers

WASWE is honoured to have a number of very experienced and talented trumpet (and bugle) players who additionally do a lot of work for the community. This year, as they have in previous years, they will be performing a number of bugle calls in the lead up to and on ANZAC day. Our buglers will play the Last Post, a minute silence and Reveille. We wish them luck with their preparations and thank them for their community service.
