Watch Mark Knopfler perform the Last Post for the fallen Remembrance Day


Bot

Rock legend Mark Knopfler honoured fallen war heroes as he performed a moving guitar version of the Last Post.

Mark, who grew up on Tyneside, dedicated his performance to the 17,000 Northumberland Fusiliers killed in the First World War.

The rendition was part of a centenary music project organised by community group Superact, which will see events held between November 4 to 18 to mark 100 years since the start of the Great War.

Mark said: “The First World War left its mark on families throughout the UK, and throughout the world.

“It is important to remember the sacrifices made, and to think about why wars happen.”

Having gone to school in Blyth, Mark dedicated the Last Post performance to the Northumberland regiment, which suffered more casualties in the war then any other.
