Also featured are the favourites of the Task Force 'The William Tell Overture', much loved by the members of 3 Commando Brigade and the one they insisted was always played by the band as an Encore 'Hootenanny'!

In addition the recording features instrumental solos including the Trombone Solo ‘A Time for Love’ by Band Colour Sergeant Gary Halsey and Saxophone Solo ‘Europa’ by Mr George Morrison both Falkland War veterans. Other Falkland War Veteran instrumentalists on this recording are Band Sergeant Fred Miller (flute) and Warrant Officer 1 George Tate (String Bass & Bass Guitar). The band hope that this recording will envoke many happy memories for former serving RMs from the Task Force.
