Book bugler Robert!
THE musical talent of Rushden British Legion Branch bugler Robert Crick is much admired and he travels around the county and the country to play at various events, raising funds for Forces’ Veterans and awareness of the work of the Royal British Legion.
But he says his diary is not completely full – and he is available for more ‘gigs’!
Robert said: “Over the past few weeks, I have been all over the country, from Newcastle to Manchester and Greenwich, to name a few. I’ve played in front of high profile dignitaries and high-ranking officers and politicians. I have covered a couple of military funerals, an army reunion, a 1940s dance or two, playing the state trumpet and bugle alike.
“I am now one of the buglers for the National Memorial Arboretum, the Royal Artillery Association and, of course, the Royal British Legion. However, my diary is not full to the gunnels and could be – so I’m open to offers of where I could be tasked to some effect, such as state and civic functions, military funerals, reunions, memorial ceremonies and wherever the need suits a bugle or state fanfare! My intention is to promote and raise money for our worthy cause.”

Kind donations of any amount are welcome to Royal British Legion.
