Bugler trio installed
Of the four Armed Services, the Royal Marines is by far the smallest, and so the bugler branch of the Royal Marines Band Service is possibly the smallest branch of all. So it was a rare event when three former Royal Marine buglers were installed as the three Principals of Brent Chapter, No. 1284, in the Province of Devonshire.
First Principal Norman Minto was a Corporal Bugler; Second Principal Den Challis, a Drum Major; and Third Principal Stuart Burgess, a Bugler. In addition, Scribe E of the Chapter, Martin Heskins, was also a Royal Marine Corporal Bugler.
