Title of a military march
« on: Thursday 03 December 20 18:17 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I hope this isn't an inappropriate request.  If it is, please delete it.  I would like to know the title of a military march, the notes of which, I have attached below.  I am hoping that someone who has played in a military band might recognise it.

Thank you very much in advance.

I would just add that the tune quoted above doesn't appear until 1 minute 14 seconds into the track posted by arthurk above -- so don't give up  :)

Thank you so much Arthurk, it's very much appreciated and I am thrilled to bits to have the title.
Thank you Bookbox, yes I had heard that part of it, but couldn't remember it well enough to write it down!
