Music of the Light Infantry

Durham Light Infantry Band 1915Throughout the history of the Durham Light Infantry and Light Infantry including the present day, music has played a big part within the Regiment and individual Battalions, whether it is being played by the Band and Bugles at a Pass Off Parade or at Regimental Functions or even at Public Engagments the music of the Light Infantry has always provided entertainment through its distinct sound and marching pace (140 paces to the minute instead of 120).

Each County Regiment had its own Regimental Quick March and Slow March which would normally be played when the Regiment or Battalion is marching off the parade square after the salute is taken. Since the amalgamation of all the County Regiments, the marches are no longer played as they once where (unless specifically requested) but are now combined into one Quick March known as 5 to 1

Below are the Quick Marches of each County Regiment.
