A Bugle Plays a Solemn Tune. A Perfect Verse for Fallen Heroes

Radio Basingstoke recently asked me to write a brief verse for a 30 second radio advertisement to promote the Fallen Heroes website.

It took me a week to come up with the concept, but it’s interesting how creativity kicks in.  As I began to write, I could imagine a bugle, and knew this would have to be an integral part of the piece.

Perhaps you’d like to listen to A Bugle Plays  by clicking on the link.  Let me know what you think.  The words and concept are mine, and the voice over was provided by Alan Donegan.  


A  Bugle Plays

A bugle plays

A solemn tune

Another soldier

Gone too soon

Loving husband

Father, son,

We honour each

And every one.
