Traditional Bugle Call : First Call

This is the traditional bugle call known as First Call, which is used by military forces to instruct the buglers to assemble. I guess the first bugler who gives the call needs to use a reliable alarm clock! The call is familiar now from its use in the U.S. at horse races.
