Communications with Music

From original newsletters

Everyone knows the wedding march when it’s played and what it means, we know when “Happy Birthday” is played it’s usually someones birthday. For centuries music has been used to convey a message.

In ancient battles music played an important part, not only to rouse the troops but to convey certain messages. Rams horns, bugles and drums were used. Bagpipes have been used for centuries, even in modern times. It is reported Bagpipe players marched into nightime attacks playing as soldiers made thier assualt during World War II and a bagpipe player rode atop a tank playing a rousing tune as British troops marched into Basra during Desert Storm.

Tunes were belted out or drums pounded to signify various happenings on the battlefield and in Camp. Civil War soldiers spent considerable time learning various tunes and beats. Who wanted to miss mail call, church or chow time? If you didn’t know various calls you might be left standing there by yourself on the battle field while the rest had retreated or moved right or left.

National Anthems have been played to signify not only patriotism, but also to signify victory. In the movie The Pianist, the scene of the truck driving through the rubble playing the Polish National Anthem, March March Dabrowski, to announce Polands liberation from nazi forces was quite common. Makeshift bands marched in the streets and record players strapped to vehicles were used to reach those in hiding to announce the war was over.

Radio Free Europe played songs to comfort and embolden those listening behind enemy lines During WW II and convey messages.

It is reported but has never been proven, the British played the Tune “When the worlds turn’d upsidedown” as they left Yorktown following thier defeat. If this is true it was probably at the behest of British General Cornwallis at his disgust of the worlds mightiest army defeated by rebels since now indeed it seemed to him, the world been turned upside down.

So Mike,
What are going to be our "code" tunes ;), not that I would want you to reply in this media. I'm sure some of the BSOSC members could come up with some good suggestions. It would be a fun topic for you to bring up at the next meeting you and Jeff conduct...jpf
