The Silver Bugle
A martial musical instrument
Adjustment to the Story of Mr William Arthur Dagger and the Silver Bugle
This story is about a Silver Bugle. This was donated by the Clifton family of Lytham to the 29th Lancashire Rifle Volunteers in 1860. Prior to 1897 William Dagger who was a member of the above regiment came into possession of the instrument. In 1911 Richard Arthur Dagger (who was the son of the above)and a volunteer in the above regiment was given the same silver bugle and kept the instrument in his possession until he returned from a camp in Cumbria; however,in 1914 on the outbreak of war he had to surrender it in exchange for a rifle and bayonet. By 1954 and now known as Captain Richard Arthur Dagger he attended a dinner at Squires Gate Camp where this same instrument was discussed. Soon afterwards a Colonel from the Army Cadet Force Camp came to see the Captain with 'his' silver bugle and presented the instrument into the safe keeping of the Captain who then kept it for several years. Later in life he returned it to Fulwood Barracks in Preston where it is still held.
