General
Audible signals have been used as a means of communications for centuries. In the military, troops were awaken, notified to assemble and soothed to sleep by bugle calls.

The Assembly



Sounded for troops to assemble in formation on the parade field for morning roll call, report and the Morning Colors ceremony.
