The video features a range of locations, including Edinburgh Castle and Tower Bridge, before finishing at the Alrewas venue.

It has been produced ahead of Remembrance Day and features Lance Corporal Sebastian Yaseen, an Assault Pioneer within the Bugle Platoon of 5th Battalion the Rifles.

The 24-year-old has spent the last two months filming at the various locations alongside a team of four Army photographers.

“It has been a great experience and sounding the Last Post is huge honour,” he said. “I always feel an overwhelming sense of pride.

“The public reaction was great. I had a lot of interest at all locations. Many people wanted photographs and asked me questions about the regiment, the bugle itself, and what we were filming for – I didn’t go into detail as we didn’t want to spoil the surprise.”

After a month of careful planning, the team of four Army photographers started filming in September. Warrant Officer Class 2 Daniel Harmer, Sergeant Jonathan Van Zyl, Corporal Tim Jones and Corporal Pete Brown brought the video to life but it is LCpl Yaseen who was the star at each location.
