Piper

The bagpipes are the sound of our  military legacy.  That legacy is - literally - Canadian Freedom.  We hear the bagpipes and we think of solemn soldiers in rows with poppies at the heart. We think of their sacrifice

Bugler

In military tradition, the Last Post is the bugle call that signifies the end of the day's activities. It is also sounded at military funerals to indicate that the soldier has gone to his final rest and at commemorative services such as Remembrance Day.
