Add March of Cambreadth to that list, too.

This comment brought to you by the word 'mityron,' and the letter 'Q'.

Of course, at the time the 24th (2nd Warwickshire) Regiment was in a state of Cardwell-Childers transition - they didn't become the South Wales Borderers until 1881, when Men of Harlech became the regimental march so this was an anachronism. But it looked and sounded great!

Yeah, a classic scene from a classic movie. Always inspiring to watch, and fun to share also with my young son too. It's great introducing him to the old classics like this. And now Wargames Factory does what looks to be nice sets of the protagonists in plastic... a future project for me, me thinks...

Love this version song, but I read someplace the movie lyrics to this song are unlike those in any other version.

The Wishful Wargamer said...

Blimey! I had to go straight to Amazon and but it in me basket after that!

Cheers WW
