Rifle Barrel Became Bugle for Musical Stunt, 1938

Using the barrel for a horn, an English musician can play bugle calls on a rifle in 1938. A trumpet mouthpiece is inserted into the muzzle and the bolt removed. The notes produced are shrill and piercing, but are said to be perfect in both tone and pitch. The originator of the idea is shown in the photograph reproduced at the left holding the novel instrument in the correct position for sounding a bugle call.
