Producer Shelley Wilkinson talks about something that is dear to her heart, and which surfaced through family memories and memorabilia, namely a photo of her Great Uncle Cecil Mead.

Each episode of Bugle Stories looks at a different, shiny or dull, facet of a little copper and brass instrument, the standard army issue bugle.

The stories range from basic facts about it, a bugle with tattoos, some children who played the bugle (Shelley's brother, for one!), what are all the messages it embodies, a sad story from Feilding and a very special bugle call.
