For my sins I am the parade marshal in our little town of 5000 souls. But we are lucky to have a British Legion Band. The Drum Major is ex 2 Queens Band. As Icant keep up I step them off then get ahead of them while they march through the town. I could hear the marches being played. Soldiers of the Queen and To be a Farmers Boy were played. After the Service while we were forming up again I spoke to the Bandmaster (Ex Regular B/M). I said why did you play the Regtl March of the Duke of Edinburgh Regt. He said it was also the Regtl March of 1 Royal Hampshires, which I didnt know. So I said what about Sussex by the Sea. I know you have the sheet music. He said he would look into that as it would give them another march next year. So hopefully the people of Leiston will hear it next year.
