The Last Parade?  Again?

On Saturday 15th of September 2007, there took place what was expected to be the last occasion when the R.E.M.E. Garrison could exercise its privilege to march through the centre of Wokingham Town as Honorary Townsfolk.  Five years have passed and on the 3rd of June 2012 the Corps exercised their privilege once again and marched though Wokingham town.  This was part of the town’s celebration for the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen.  At the same time it was a chance to celebrate the 70 years since the formation of R.E.M.E. in 1942.  The photos below are of the parade in 2012.

The R.E.M.E. Corps Quick March is based on Lilliburlero and incorporates a version of the French tune Aupres de ma blonde.

The Australian Corps, R.A.E.M.E. also uses Lilliburlero but adds its own distinctive tune which you can experience by clicking on this link.      Long live memories of Marlene Dietrich.

If nostalgia rules then the B.B.C. Version of Lilliburlero may be for you.
