In the United Kingdom the Armed Forces are not under the direction of the government, but under that of Her Majesty, the Queen, as they belong to her, not the government of the day. Soldiers oaths are taken in her name and allegiance is sworn to The Crown, not the government of the day. For as interesting as this is, there is more to the military than soldiers, arms and tours of duty. Within Her Majesty’s Forces, the massed bands come together to perform centuries old, as well as modern, music. There are band conductors, drum majors and one man in particular who is in charge of all State Ceremonial music played for and in front of Her Majesty. Crown & Country Radio respects and honours such time old traditions regarding music within the forces, and it is our pleasure to bring this topic front and centre for our listeners to enjoy. #C&CRadioMilitary
