What is a Bugle Call?

Hey guys today we have to find out what a bugle call was. I decided to post mine. I have put all the bugle calls and the definition of what a bugle call is. Here they are!

What is a bugle call?
A bugle call is were they have a trumpet and they have different calls, they retreat men,assemble the men and to warn men. I will tell you all about the calls and what the are.

First Call:
Is a call to warn the soldiers to prepare to get into formation.

Reveille:
The call told the men to come out of their beds and get ready for the day.

Asebbley:
This call was signalling the men to form ranks for the first three roll calls held through out the day.

Guard mounting:
Assignments for the guard duty followed the 9 am call of guard mount.

Drill Call:
Was a warning to turn up for drill

Recall:
Signals duties or signals to ceace.

Mail Call:
Mail calls signalled personnel to assemble for the distribution of mail.

Officer Call:
This call signaled all the officers to assemble at a designated place

First sergeant call:
Warned that the first sergeant was about to form company.

Retreat Call:

  1. Hi Leah Sorry I haven't looked at your work the last couple of days!
    You have been teaching me so many interesting things. They used the bugle a lot for communication didn't they. I wonder if they would still use the bugle or if they would text?
