Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band Marks The 100th Anniversary Of The End Of World War One, With A New Release “Last Post Home”.

Entitled “Last Post Home” the track has been specially written by Della Holliday and Adrian Williams in memory of those who served, or fell, in  the Great War of 1914-18.

Members of the Honley Male Voice Choir were enlisted to sing the track. The brief given to their Musical Director, Steven Roberts, was to record a vocal performance which captured a hint of the common man marching to war.
