The Rouse

The Rouse was historically used as the signal for soldiers to arise.

Today it is closely associated with the Last Post at all military funerals and service of dedication and remembrance.

The Rouse is played on the completion of one minute's silence, after the Last Post has been sounded.

The bugle call is lively and uplifting, designed to rouse soldiers' spirits for another day of military activity.
