The visit is part of a two-day trip to France and Belgium, marking the centenary of the end of World War One. On Sunday 26 August, the Band will play at the Menin Gate, Belgium, where tens of thousands of men with no known grave are remembered.
At Sailly-sur-Lys, the Band will lay a wreath on the grave of Thomas Penhorwood, a former policeman from Newquay who was killed collecting wounded from the battle of Aubers Ridge in 1915.
