From 22nd through 24th October, The Bermuda Tattoo will present a world-class spectacle of music and military precision in the historic grounds of the Keep Yard, Royal Naval Dockyard. A fantastic overseas line-up including performers from the USA, UK, Canada and the Caribbean will join our very own Bermuda Regiment Band and Corps of Drums and other local acts, including a specially-commissioned choir. The event will be replete with artillery guns, fireworks, and military pageantry, all in celebration of the Bermuda Regiment's 50th Anniversary and important role that it continues to play in Bermuda's culture and heritage.

WILL YE NO COME BACK AGAIN?

 

CapBadge38th

The 38th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force provided a thousand man garrison in Bermuda from 1915 to 1916. This battalion, commanded by Lt Col Cameron M Edwards, was comprised in large part of soldiers from what is now The Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa (Duke of Edinburgh’s Own), who perpetuate the 38th, and the Governor General's Foot Guards. The 38th Battalion developed a close link to the community, regularly participating in many local ceremonies including Changing the Guard at the Government House. Of note was the heroic part played by members of the 38th in the rescue of personnel from the SS Pollock Shields which was wrecked on Bermuda's reefs in 1916. Three members of the 38th are buried in local cemeteries.

 

The 38th Battalion’s air was the medley “Will ye no come back again” and “Ye’ll tak' the high road”. It is most appropriate therefore that the bands of the “Guards” and “Camerons” are participating in the Bermuda Tattoo 2015, not only celebrating the Bermuda Regiment's 50th, but commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the posting of the 38th Battalion to Bermuda!

THURSDAY 23rd JULY - Government House, Pembroke, Bermuda: The Bermuda Tattoo launched today revealing an exceptional line-up of local and international acts.

 

Principal Director, Maj Dwight Robinson noted: "The international groups were specially selected not only for their musical and performing excellence, but because many have long-established relationships with the Regiment and Bermuda." Amongst other connections, the Pipes and Drums of 19 Regiment Royal Artillery, shares historical links to one of the two units which amalgamated to form the Bermuda Regiment: The Bermuda Militia Artillery, who served in both World Wars with the Royal Artillery.
