PODCAST of the Day: The Band of the Parachute Regiment Mentor the Afghan National Army Band.

February 6, 2011

Members of the Afghan National Army Band are mentored by the Band of the Parachute Regiment at the National Military Academy in Kabul. Aside from the odd ‘bum’ note, the ANA band are coming on in leaps and bounds with their new instruments. Under the Taliban regime, their old instruments had to be hidden, sometimes buried from view.

Listen to the band in action and the thoughts of the band leaders here

      You are so right on that one. I marched around College Hall at Cranwell to that tune on my graduation and now I own a copy of the film! Does that make me sad, or just proud!!!
