'British military music has evolved from the basic battlefield signals on drums, fifes and trumpets, into a quality of sound and instrumentation which demands playing standards and musicianship of the highest order. This magnificently illustrated series covers more than three centuries of that evolution... This volume covers The King's Division, The Prince of Wales's Division and The Light Division. Included are many of the most famous and venerated county regiments - such as The King's Regiment, The Green Howards, The South Wales Borderers and the Sherwood Foresters - together with all Light Infantry regiments.'
This is the third in a monumental three-volume study that traces the history of British military music from its early beginnings, when the basic signals on the battlefield were drums, fifes and trumpets, to the modern era.
