The Rouse is a bugle call is most often associated with the military in Commonwealth countries. It is commonly played followingThe Last Post at military services and is known in popular parlance as Reveille. Despite often being referred to by the name Reveille The Rouse is actually a separate piece of music from the traditional Reveille. The Rouse was traditionally played following the Reveille which was a bugle call played in the morning to wake soldiers up. The Rouse would be played to get soldiers out of bed. Because of the close association between the two tunes The Rouse is commonly mistaken for Reveille and has taken on many of the functions Reveille traditionally held in remembrance ceremonies (such as those on Remembrance Day due to its shorter length and the ease with which it can be played).
