Album Notes
In 1917 Bertie George Englert, Trumpet player, Bugler and Pianist, born in Dungog, NSW, Australia, joined the Australian Imperial Forces (A.I.F.) and headed off to war. Thus started an amazing story including the ship he was sailing on being torpedoed and sunk in the English Channel on Anzac Day, 1917 and being sent as a member of the 14th Battalion A.I.F. to the front lines in France at Allonville, France in 1918. After performing a concert with 'The Smart Set, A.I.F. Concert Party in barns where they were billeted, they were struck by 2 high velocity shells fired by the Germans from the front line 9 miles away. The first shell killed and wounded over 100 men (the largest casualty count form a single shell burst in the history of the A.I.F.). Shortly after a second shell hit the billet where Bertie and the band were sleeping. 4 band members including Bertie were killed instantly. Bertie was 31 years old and had been married shortly before leaving Australia, never to return. He is buried at Allonville Cemetary, France, alongside his best friend William Wooton who had transferred at his own request to be with Bertie 27 days prior. They died side by side and are buried side by side. Bertie's Great Nephew, Greg Englert, a composer, musician, producer based in Sydney Australia only recently learned that Bertie was a fellow trumpeter (Greg also plays bugle calls at funerals for Australian Servicemen) and set out to make a 36 minute movie - Bertie George Englert - 'The Little Bugler' as well as composing, arranging, playing, recording and producing original music for the movie. The music is very 1918 and is mainly based on concert band and brass band instrumentation (Many of Greg's fellow NSW Ambulance Band musicians perform on the tracks) and evokes both eh good and the sad times of this amazing story
