A soggy 1812 overture with cannons at the War Memorial

johnboy 7 April 2013

buggsubique has posted last night’s show at the War Memorial to YouTube for our enjoyment and edification:

The Royal Military College Band played the 1812 Overture, 105mm towed howitzers fired, and the display concluded with fireworks. It rained the whole time.

If you’re new to the piece listen to the strains of Russian and French music contending and then wait for the Big Kabooms. That’s the Battle of Borodino for you!


UPDATE: GP has sent in a selection of pictures from the open day:
