Light Infantry Music

Anyone who has watched the green-jacketed heroes of the television drama ‘Sharpe’ in action may be able to identify with the ethos and history that envelops the forerunners of today’s Light Division. It is this spirit of daring and forward thinking that has lifted the Band of The Light Division into the unique position it holds within the world of Army Music today.

Formed in August 1994 from the Salamanca and Corunna bands of the Light Infantry and the Peninsula and Normandy bands of the Royal Green Jackets, the band upholds traditions that can be dated back as far as 1665. Their abandonment of the cumbersome drum in favour of the silver bugle enables them to perform breath-taking displays, and stadiums and auditoriums around the world have echoed to the sound of thunderous applause as their rifle-green uniforms leave a trail of dust in their wake.

As well as performing as a world-renowned marching band and concert wind band the musicians also perform in many varied combinations such as:

Woodwind and Brass Quintets

Fanfare Trumpet Teams

Barbershop Quartet

String Ensemble

Dixieland Jazz Band

Dance Band

The band provides support for many famous military and civilian events from Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace to the Royal tournament as well as making regular television and radio appearances. They are kept very busy being the only 49 piece Army band outside London, and recent overseas tours have included Jordan, Greece, Cyprus and much of continental Europe.
