As a modern military signaling instrument, the bugle dates from about 1750, when Hanoverian Jäger battalions adopted the Flügelmeister’s (the leader/director of the hunt) semicircular copper horn. Other light infantries replaced their bulky drums with the more portable brass instrument. English rangers and skirmishers did the same and thus the German flügelhorn, became the bugle horn. Besides giving non-verbal orders over the din of battle, the bugle announces scheduled and certain non-scheduled events on an army installation throughout the day. When to rise, when to assemble, when to eat, and ultimately when to sleep are a few of the commands sounded by the martialing instrument.
