  1. Band and Bugles of The Rifles record charity tribute

    The song is said to stir emotions for many of the band
    An Army regiment which has suffered losses in Afghanistan has recorded its own seasonal tribute to the fallen and families affected by the conflict.
    The Winchester-based Band and Bugles of The Rifles recorded Love Farewell with folksinger John Tams to raise money for the Help for Heroes charity.
    The song was originally written for servicemen going into battle in the Peninsular War against Napoleon.
    It has also been played at recent service funerals.
    The song is said to stir emotions for many of the band, which often supplies a bugler for repatriation ceremonies at RAF Lyneham to mark the return of the fallen.
