From the website:

6.55pm - The Last Post - In association with the Air Training Corps, Army Cadet Force, Sea Cadet Force and the Light Infantry Buglers Association, the Last Post will be played at many of the 1,000 WWI Beacon sites throughout the United Kingdom, involving young people and others paying their personal tribute to those that gave their lives during World War I.
