    Greetings all

    I have begun work on the 150th Taps project but wanted to see if I could enlist some help from all the folks on this forum.
    I am looking for bugle calls/signals that other countries use for funeral honors, wreath and/or memorial services

    Of course there are the obvious ones:
    "Taps" for the United States
    "Last Post" for Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other commonwealth countries
    "Aux Morts" for France
    "Ich hatt' einen Kameraden" for Germany

    But what about other nations?
    Argentina
    China
    Japan
    Greece
    India
    Mexico
    Italy
    Israel
    Russia
    South Korea

    etc etc etc

    Any ideas?

    So what I'm looking for, with your help, is printed music, a recording (that would be great) and/or any documentation of any funeral honors bugle calls.

    Your help will be appreciated much!

    You can respond here or write me direct at [email protected]

    Thanks

    Best Regards

    Other than seaching Google, I do not know, but I want to Welcome you to our Forum. Stay and be active.

    I am a member of Bugles Across America, but I get few calls for this Service of Honor.

    Great Idea, I wish you the best.
    FWIW; Here's the Australian Last Post and ceremony (Last Post; 1 minutes silence and Reveille/ Rouse). Played on Bb bugle - all valves open on Trumpet.
    Australian War Memorial - Commemoration
    The Last Post - Stories from Australia's Culture Portal
    Sheet Music:

    At the conclusion of the Minutes silence, Rouse is played, except for a Dawn Service when Reville is played. Reveille is very difficult to play. (Same as Britain)

    Thanks for the reply

    I sound the Last Post in Washington DC for the ANZAC Day services at the National Cathedral every year. It's quite an honor and I always make sure I use a B Flat Duty Bugle!

    In Japan, typical funeral doesn't have trumpet/bugle playing.

    Thanks

    Would that be for military funerals in Japan? Is there any special music for memorial services?

    Appreciate the responses

    military funeral...

    well, after WW2, Japan officially does not have a military force.
    (forbidden by constitution. tho, having a "defensive force" in legally questionable state.)
    So, there can be military funeral of former solder, officer, or "military" funeral for the member of the "defensive force", but I never heard of it in Japan.
    (funeral is typically run in buddhist's way...)

    Also, difference is that in Japan, typically the body of the deceased is sent to cremation after the funeral, (typically only the closest in family attend the cremation) and funeral is not done at the graveyard.
