Lawrence Hayes takes British Legion Trumpeter Post
Lawrence Hayes (Year 9) attended a presentation on Friday 18th of December to officially receive his award for becoming the Royal British Legion trumpeter for the Barnack & District branch.
Lawrence, who was also a finalist at ‘Rutland’s got talent’ in October, was offered the position in writing after his performance of ‘last post’ at Barnack.
On Friday 18th he then received his RBL tie and badge from Chairman Charles Clark upon his appointment as Branch Trumpeter at a ceremony held at The White Hart Inn, Ufford. After the presentation, Lawrence entertained Branch members with a selection of Christmas Carols.
This cements the longstanding association with The Stamford Endowed Schools Combined Cadet Force, which is officially affiliated to the Branch.
Lawrence played Last Post and Reveille at Barnack’s commemoration of Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day for two years running and is now a junior member of the Legion.
