About This Work

The Mercian Regiment was formed on the 1st of September 2007 at Tamworth Castle and is an amalgamation/merger of four pre-existing regiments of The Prince of Wales’s Division, namely ‘The 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment’, ‘The Worcestershire and Sherwood Forrester’s Regiment’, ‘The Staffordshire Regiment’ and ‘The West Midlands Regiment’.

The inspiration for the first half of the march was the pre-existing regimental marches and two personalities central to the Mercian Regiment, Lady Aethelred, a local historic figure and HRH, The Prince of Wales, the Colonel of The Regiment.

In the introduction, the opening call is that of “The Staffordshire Regiment” answered by ‘Wa Wadna Fetch for Charlie’ the regimental march of the “22nd (Cheshire) Regiment.

The first subject is based on the melodic material found in The 22nd’s March.

The second subject invokes cries to the aforementioned personalities, central to the new regiment. The first ‘cry’, is that of ‘Aethelred!’ played by the upper woodwind and high brass, this is immediately answered by the lower
registered instruments with, ‘The Prince of Wales!’ The two calls are interspersed with melodic material taken from the regimental march of the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment.

The second half of the march is an abridged arrangement of J F Wagner’s ‘Under The Double Eagle’, this represents the Mercian Regiment’s Cap Badge, a Double Eagle, wearing a Saxon Crown.

The Mercian Regiment was formed on the 1st of September 2007 at Tamworth Castle and is an amalgamation/merger of four pre-existing regiments of The Prince of Wales’s Division.
