Police Remembrance Day, 2009

The band has once again taken part in Police Remembrance Day 2009. This year the service was held at the Salvation Army, North Rockhampton. We have participated in this ceremony for over 10 years now, despite it always being held on a weekday morning. Although it is impossible to have the whole band attend, we have always been able to assemble a capable group, and this year was no exception. Some players come straight from work, hence some different uniforms.

The band played a number of hyms prior to and during the service, and also performed the Requiescant, a bugle call reminiscent of the Last Post, but specially written for the event. We believe this is the only Police Remembrance Day ceremony held in Queensland, and possibly Australia, that has a brass band participating. Our performance was well received by all. Thank you to those members able to participate.
