Anzac Day blast from the streets

On AnzacDay and Remembrance Daynothing helps people reflect like hearing the Last Post played by a bugler.

An increasing number of services are forced to userecordingsbecause of the lack of buglers.

Lockhart RSL president Stephen Goodwin believes the Last Post is a vital part of Anzac Day.

“That’s what it’s all about,” he said.

“It gives people time to think and reflect. Hearing it played by a bugler sends tingles up your spine.”

The Diggers Last Post is an onlinecommunity aiming to get all buglers and trumpet players to play the Last Post at dawn on April 25.

Musicians are encouraged to walk out their front door, onto a balcony, the beach, a paddock or any local high point where the breeze will carry the sound.

Brett Stevenson from Sydney is behind the campaign and hopes musicians of all ages and abilities will take part.

While getting to a dawn service isn’t easy for most people Mr Stevenson hopes by hearing the Last Post played in the streets people will feel involved.

Mr Goodwin hopes the campaignwill draw attention to the lack of musicians and encourage the younger generation to learn how to play.

“It might raise peoples awareness of what it is like to hear it played live,” he said.
