Alford, who has been called the British March King, wrote this march in 1942 to honor the World War II Eagle Squadron, a group of American pilots who joined the British RAF in 1940, before the U.S. entered the war. He held a number of musical posts during his distinguished career in the British Army and the Royal Marines. His best-known march is Colonel Bogey, which was used in the film Bridge on the River Kwai. --James Huff 06:13, 23 November 2008 (UTC) (from the program notes of The Claremont Winds, submitted with permission)
