Gayest Regimental March.

#1
Those of us that have served will, of course, have pride in all our Regiments, Corps or Branch of Services Traditions.
But....Regimental Marches quick, slow or Hokey Cokey gaylord theme tune?
While well played, by one of the finest Military Bands IMO, my Corps quick march is utterly Inman.

I was a bit surprised to find that Sarie Marais was adopted by both the Royal Marines and the French Foreign Legion.

The RMs alternative name according to a former Officer is The "Scottish Foreign Legion', as it was full of Jocks.
So entirely logical.

Did any one see Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands at her last official ceremony before her "retirement"? The band marching was a cross between normal march and model cat walk, or were they merely stoned?

Ours was passed on to the Yorkshire Regiment. It comes in 2 halves. The first was the West Yorks (14th Foot) and is called Ca Ira, nicked from the French. It's zippy and purposeful.

The second half came from the East Yorks (15th Foot) and sets a different tone. It always reminds me of a bucolic farmer strolling over a meadow with a straw in his mouth on his way for a pint.

When marching to it, you go from driving forwards with a thousand yard stare to a bit of relaxed hip-swinging. Watching the Bn march past, you can see the shift.

My old Regiment's Quick March is a bit camp.

To achieve full campness, go to 2:24. Always made me want to skip along :wink:

When the Regular numbers have been pared down and the TA numbers increased, will it revert to that of The Yorkshire Volunteers?
