The Walrus at work Songs for St Georges Day (64* d) RE: Songs for St Georges Day 20 Mar 02

Of "The Grenadiers March" (which is not the same as "British Grenadiers") "...The late Cpt Graves, of the Royal Welch Fusiliers, tells us that only the bataillons with grenadier tradition are entitled to this music..."


This would include every line (ordinary infantry) battalion in the British Army as, by the Napoleonic period, in each battalion, the right hand company (made of the tallest and most imposing men) was designated the Grenadier Company.
