Kenneth Landfry (bugler?) - Charge of the Light Brigade

Some years ago, "Coral Records" produced an album titled "The Voices of the 20th Century", narrated by Henry Fonda. Short sound clips of famous individuals whose voices had been recorded for posterity during the early years of the phonograph, were amassed in this recording.

The first excerpt (recorded 1891) was performed by Kenneth Landfry, supposedly the bugler who sounded the command at The Charge of the Light Brigade. As part of the introduction (prior to his reenacting the event), it was claimed (that) this bugle was blown at Waterloo.

Does anyone know if: A) Landfry really was the bugler sounding charge at Balaklava and, B) The bugle in question was played at Waterloo AND Balaklava?
