THE HELP FOR HEROES (FORMERLY INVICTUS GAMES) CHOIR:

The Band of the Rifles is based at the poignantly and very appropriately named Sir John Moore Barracks in Winchester, Hampshire and is part of the Corps of Army Music. The band maintains traditions that date back over 200 years, including the use of the silver bugle and the distinctly fast marching speed
