military march for the Army

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by jtalfa, Nov 13, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The Navy have Hearts of oak but is there a general march used by the Army
     
  2. Each Corps/Regiment has its own slow and quick march and gallops. British Grenadier is relatively common I think.

  3. thanks for the quick reply
    I am at a tri-service event and want to play each services march.
     
  4. "Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines" should go down well for the RAF, failing that, try "The Thin Blue Line" aka Monty Python's theme tune.

    Or just accept the general concensus that the RAF can't march.
     
  5. If you want a stirring march that is Corps/Regiment neutral, you could do a lot worse
    than 'Soldiers of the Queen'

    Should be straightforward to get the arrangement and it must be on loads of military music/Army bands CDs

    It's the soldiers of the Queen, my lads
    Who've been, my lads, who've seen, my lads
    In the fight for England's glory lads
    When we've had to show them what we mean:
    And when we say we've always won
    And when they ask us how it's done
    We'll proudly point to every one
    Of England's soldiers of the Queen.
     
  6. These days 'Great Little Army' would seem appropriate
     
  7. Soldiers of the Queen, surely?
