Regimental march for the AGC

Discussion in 'AGC, RAPTC and SASC' started by shrew, Nov 17, 2006.

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. Hi all - sorry I don't belong here, but I have been asked to find the regimental march for the AGC...

    It's called the 'Pride of Lions' and it's by Major Denis Burton. I need a recording of it ASAP. I've found sheet music for it, but that doesn't play on a CD player.

    Also please refrain from sending me renditions of the 'Theme from the Muppet Show' and the Dolly Parton classic 'Nine to Five'. They were suggested and now he's in a strop.

    This is a serious request. Reply by pm is fine, but I'm quite hairy, bad tempered and I don't put out.

    Help me Oh Arrse One Kenobi... you're my only hope.
     
  2. Get hold of the Watchtower-we all know the only functioning example of AGC is RMP..
    I'll get me coat
     
  3. the tune from Poridge?
     
  4. 'Hairy, bad tempered and don't put out'? Shame. I've got a thing about hairy chix. (are you under 5ft 2ins?)
     
  5. Looking for a female alter ego Biccies?
     
  6. not in full alpha.

    does that help?
     
  7. This should do it.

  8. Sir

    You are a scholar, a gentleman and I will tell all my female mates you are fantastic in bed.

    Many thanks.

    Now if any other obliging gentlemen (or gentle ladies...?) could send me the MP3 that would be dancing!

    (not asking the moon at all!)

    Shrew

    PS - still in full alpha and waiting...
     
  9. um... itunes is not letting me download the track!

    argh!
     
  10. My bold.

    The AGC has a band?!? Who walks into an ACIO and asks to join the AGC band?!?
     
  11. You're showing your ignorance, mate. An individual joins the Corps of Army Music and, after being trained to play like Les Dawson, gets posted to a Regimental or Corps band, eg. The Heavy Cavalry and Cambrai Band, The Band of The Royal Corps of Signals OR The Band of the Adjutant General's Corps.

    Look on the bright side. You'd get to pilfer loads of stationary...
     
  12. Pity.
     
  13. Thanks for the explanation.

    It would be fascinating to see posting preferences for the Corps of Army Music!
     
  14. Ahhh, Northern Monkey, we meet again, Best you do get your coat :wink:
