Bugling

Background


The bugle is a traditional Scouting (and military) instrument to convey order and information to a large group. This page provides information relevant to the Bugling merit badge of the Boy Scouts of America, including a discussion of the required calls and links to other web sites with information about bugles. This includes information about calls not required for the merit badge (for example, a couple of the links lead to discussions of British bugle calls).

Calls

There are fifteen required calls for the Bugling merit badge (buglers are required to sound each call and explain when each is used). Links are to the US Army Bands bugle call pages unless otherwise indicated. I've used the Army name for the call when the Army and BSA names disagree (usually the addition of the word "Call" to the name the Bugling requirement gives the Call)

Regular Calls

Occasional Calls

  • Church Call There is no sound file on Army Bands page; the link is to the US Scouts page
  • Swimming This is not an Army call; the link is to the US Scouts page
  • Fire Call There is no sound file on Army Bands page; the link is to the US Scouts page
