Denis Burton Obituary, Cause Of Death – Major Dennis Burton MBE. The news that the very first Bandmaster of this unit, Major Burton, had gone away this week was a blow to all of us here at this organization. This is unfortunate news for each and every one of us. This is a really unlucky turn of circumstances that have taken place.
After playing a pivotal role in the formation of the Royal Gibraltar Band in 1992, which he then directed in a Ceremonial Convent Guard, one of the band’s earliest performances as a newly formed unit, Major Burton was awarded the Order of the British Empire.
This was one of the band’s earliest performances as a newly formed unit. This was done as a token of appreciation for his contributions to the band, and it also marked one of the band’s initial performances as a newly constituted entity (OBE).
During the ceremony that took place in 2018 in which Major Burton was awarded the MBE, a spokesperson from the Ministry of Defense made the following statement: “Without Major Burton’s efforts in 1992, we would not have the professional band that we see today.” This is an issue that is still relevant in today’s world due to the fact that numerous members of the band are currently serving in the armed forces as well as the fact that the band continues to play his music.
