RAMC Corps March question

#1
Hi,

I know this is a bit of a weird question, but.....

Does anyone here happen to know when "Here's a health unto his Majesty" was adopted as the Corps march?

There is a reason for my question but it is far too long and boring a story to tell here!

Thanks,

Tubs

The Regimental March was originally Her Bright Smile Haunts me Still reputed to be a tribute to Florence Nightingale, followed by Washington Post and Bonnie Nell. In 1948, to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of the Corps and as a tribute to HM the Queen ( later the Queen Mother),Here’s a Health Unto His Majesty was very appropriately adopted.

Thanks very much, I did look (promise) but I didn't see that.

I knew about the previous marches [geek voice](one of which I believe is still the slow march)[/geek voice] but I just wanted to work out some sort of time scale as I happen to know that Bonny Nell was published in '23.

Back to lurking I go,
