Military marches


I just thought I'd start a thread on military marches.

The official march of the Royal Navy is Heart of Oak:

The WW2 march of the Imperial Japanese Navy:

I would post Men of Harlech, but I'm not aware if it's actually the official march of the Royal Regiment of Wales.

The Royal regiment of Wales is now the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Welsh and Men of Harlech is their Quick March. It is the Slow March of the Welsh Guards.
(I can see this thread upsetting a couple of people)

(includes men of harlech)

It is pretty catchy, probably the best march I've heard.

I also quite like Wings from the Royal Engineers too.

Also the German "Panzerlied" [the "tank song"] is to remembered

Original version [in Hollywood movies they made a better one, honestly!]


And Russians had their one, not that bad too ...

Lillibullero is the official Regimental March of the
Royal_Electrical_and_Mechanical_Engineers Royal_Electrical_and_Mechanical_Engineers
(abbrev. REME).
It's also the theme tune for the BBC World Service.
REME was established in 1942 and so the BBC's official wartime use of Lillibullero may well have played a part in its selection by REME, but it seems more likely that the BBC's reliance on REME for its wartime development and coverage led to the BBC adopting the march at around that time as a signature tune.

The tune is also over 300 years old.
