A LONE bugler plays his solemn tune on the Jurassic Coast – and at other landmarks around the UK – as Britain prepares to remember the fallen.

In a poignant video made by the British Army for Remembrance Day, the Last Post echoes around the nation to commemorate those who made the ultimate sacrifice in war.

Dorset has a starring role in the video with Durdle Door being selected from an endless list of possible locations to play host to the bugler, Lance Corporal Sebastian Yaseen.

L/Cpl Yaseen, 24, an Assault Pioneer within the Bugle Platoon of 5th Battalion the Rifles was selected to be featured in the Army’s Remembrance Video out of 80 players within the regiment.

He said it is one of the great achievements of his career so far.

“This has been a great year for me,” said L/Cpl Yaseen. “I placed second in the regimental competition and became the Colonel Commandant’s Bugler.”

In the five years that he has been playing the bugle, L/Cpl Yaseen has played at Horse Guards, the Royal Albert Hall and at a number of international rugby matches.

He spent a number of days over the last two months filming all over the UK for The Last Post video (watch it below).

After a month of careful planning, a 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.

He said: "Filming all over the UK has been a great experience and sounding the Last Post is huge honour. I always feel an overwhelming sense of pride.”

Poignantly, the video opens to the sound of waves crashing at the foot of the White Cliffs of Dover, with the bugler looking out to sea. As the moving music continues, the camera starts to circle the bugler and as it does the location changes – transporting us to a sunrise over Stonehenge then to the beach at Durdle Door.

Other locations include Tower Bridge and Edinburgh Castle, with the ending fittingly, at the National Memorial Arboretum.

L/Cpl Yaseen said: “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.”
