During my three years plus with QOH, I was with "B" Sqn, the other two squadrons were in the Far East. When we were all together again, in Hohne, an Alamein Day parade was held.

I remember how chuffed I was to hear the Regimental March was
"Leichte Cavallerie", (von Suppe).

There can be few marches more stirring, except, perhaps the Parachute Regiment's "Ride of the Valkiries", (Wagner).

Or perhaps YOU know better ? Suspect

When I was on the Amalgimation parade in 1957, they played marches from the 7th (Queens Own) Hussars & 3rd (The Kings Own) Hussars. I remembered how moved a lot of people were and how sad they were for their respective regiments.

Screw-Guns
by Rudyard Kipling






Smokin' my pipe on the mountings, sniffin' the mornin' cool,
I walks in my old brown gaiters along o' my old brown mule,
With seventy gunners be'ind me, an' never a beggar forgets
It's only the pick of the Army
that handles the dear little pets — 'Tss! 'Tss!
For you all love the screw-guns — the screw-guns they all love you!
So when we call round with a few guns,
o' course you will know what to do — hoo! hoo!
Jest send in your Chief an' surrender —
it's worse if you fights or you runs:
You can go where you please, you can skid up the trees,
but you don't get away from the guns!

They sends us along where the roads are, but mostly we goes where they ain't:
We'd climb up the side of a sign-board an' trust to the stick o' the paint:
We've chivied the Naga an' Looshai, we've give the Afreedeeman fits,
For we fancies ourselves at two thousand,
we guns that are built in two bits — 'Tss! 'Tss!
For you all love the screw-guns . . .

If a man doesn't work, why, we drills 'im an' teaches 'im 'ow to behave;
If a beggar can't march, why, we kills 'im an' rattles 'im into 'is grave.
You've got to stand up to our business an' spring without snatchin' or fuss.
D'you say that you sweat with the field-guns?
By God, you must lather with us — 'Tss! 'Tss!
For you all love the screw-guns . . .

The eagles is screamin' around us, the river's a-moanin' below,
We're clear o' the pine an' the oak-scrub,
we're out on the rocks an' the snow,
An' the wind is as thin as a whip-lash what carries away to the plains
The rattle an' stamp o' the lead-mules —
the jinglety-jink o' the chains — 'Tss! 'Tss!
For you all love the screw-guns . . .

There's a wheel on the Horns o' the Mornin',
an' a wheel on the edge o' the Pit,
An' a drop into nothin' beneath you as straight as a beggar can spit:
With the sweat runnin' out o' your shirt-sleeves,
an' the sun off the snow in your face,
An' 'arf o' the men on the drag-ropes
to hold the old gun in 'er place — 'Tss! 'Tss!
For you all love the screw-guns . . .

Smokin' my pipe on the mountings, sniffin' the mornin' cool,
I climbs in my old brown gaiters along o' my old brown mule.
The monkey can say what our road was —
the wild-goat 'e knows where we passed.
Stand easy, you long-eared old darlin's!
Out drag-ropes! With shrapnel! Hold fast — 'Tss! 'Tss!
For you all love the screw-guns — the screw-guns they all love you!
So when we take tea with a few guns,
o' course you will know what to do — hoo! hoo!
Jest send in your Chief an' surrender —
it's worse if you fights or you runs:
You may hide in the caves, they'll be only your graves,
but you can't get away from the guns!

Here's a little one for the Guns :



A Toast to the Guns
By them we live,
For them we would die.
Whatever the Mission,
We'll give it a try.

We'll serve them with Honor
For they are the ones;
That make us Artillerymen,
So here's to the Guns:
TO THE GUNS!!

This could be on a par with "Ride of the Valkyries".

It looks like you've got a copy of "Barrack Room Ballads Gordon !

Shelldrake - from "Ubique".

Ubique means that warning grunt the perished linesman knows,

When o'er his strung an' sufferin' front the shrapnel sprays his foes.

An' as their firin' dies away the 'usky whisper runs

From lips that 'avent drunk all day:

"The Guns, Thank Gawd, The Guns !"

Funny how all these rousing marches are of German origin.

Was it QDG who had "Radetsky Marsch" as their quick march ?

Another good 'un ! study

Aces High by Ron Goodwin is one of my favourite marches. You may remember it being played in the film 'Battle of Britain'. Yes I know, before any of you start, it is also called the Luftwaffe March

Having seen all this stirring stuff about the guns, I've been scouring my "Barrack Room Ballads for something "Scaley" to return the compliment.

Sadly although Mr Kipling writes some good stuff about the Engineers, he doesn't mention the heliograph in his book.

I DID try, chaps !

Certa Cito

Consider the poor Signalman, often the butt of jest,
but on the square at Catterick he'd put a guardsman to the test,
he has to be a marksman, clerk and driver too,
you'll see him in a headset in crushed beret of navy blue,
to climb a pole with speed is the acid test,
to lay a line cross country needs map reading at its best.


Regimental troops spend their hitch in one posting, maybe two,
but to locate a Signalman puts the postie in a stew.
Basic training for the Corps is at Vimy and at Somme,
and if a Regular you chose to be, you know where I'm coming from.
You'll hear them sing their marching song, some say without respect,
but see them march behind their band, in Regimentals bedecked.


He soldiered in Korea and with the Army of the Rhine,
He also did his duty well under fire, in the line,
he served his time in Cyprus, Malaya and Hong Kong,
it wasn't in the NAAFI he earned his "Rooty Gong".
So next time you see a Signalman, remember he's a Soldier too,
he's a master of a hundred trades, I wonder son, are you.

I've marched behind some great bands in my years with the military (cadets, regular, TA and ex service groups) .. apart from 'Begone Dull Care' Royal Signals Regt March, I always get a kick out of The Maple Leaf Forever.
