The Bermuda Regiment March

The Bermuda Regiment March is a stirring quick march heard when The Colours are marched on and off parade and when troops are marching past. The march was written in 1965 by then Director of Music Major LN Dunn, MBE, ED, ARCM. Lyrics were added by Maj B StV Dill, ED, EM, AVCM as follows:

Here’s To Us The Soldiers Of The Land, Our Land,
Honour Bound, Brave And Sure, We’re Proud From Man To Man,
Bermuda Is The Home Of Regimental Pride,
And To Our Flag We’ll Ever Be True.

Oh, Here’s To Us The Soldiers Of The Land, Our Land,
Following The Sounds Of Our Own Band Throughout The Land,
Oh, Here’s To Us The Leaders Of The Fight And Light,
And For Our Own, We’ll Struggle To The End.

For We Will Not Be Moved Away,
From Our Task, From Our Goals,
To Conquer All Our Foes,
For We Will All Unite,
To Preserve And Lead The Glorious Fight.

For We Will Not Be Swayed Away,
From Our Task, From Our Goals,
To Conquer All Our Foes,
For We Will All Unite,
To Preserve And Win The Glorious Fight.
