Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Last night I had the pleasure of being entertained by the Light Cavalry Band at "Proms at the Tank Museum" at Bovington.

    "The Tank Museum is hosting an open air charity concert, with The Light Cavalry Band performing a selection of patriotic Proms favourites.

    The concert will be the first by the 33 member band, following a major reorganisation of army music that has seen The Band of the Light Dragoons merging with the Band of the Royal Lancers.

    Museum spokesman Nik Wyness said; “Proms at The Museum will feature all the pomp and circumstance of The Last Night of The Proms, with many popular classics, such as Land Of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia and Jerusalem.”

    “It’s the first time The Museum has held such an open air concert, and we hope that visitors will bring along Union Jacks and dress in the spirit of the occasion. They are also welcome to bring along chairs, rugs and perhaps a picnic so they can really enjoy the evening. We also recommend that warm clothes are also brought – although we are able to move the concert indoors should the great British weather live up to expectations!”

    Proceeds from the concert are to be split
    between the Corps of Army Music Trust and The Tank Museum."

    An excellent evening was had by all (though the Dorset audience was a tad on the quiet/reserved side.)

    "Well done" the men and women in the band!!! You delivered a varied, humourous, awesome concert.
