„Men of Harlech“

„The March of the Men of Harlech“

„Through Seven Years“


A song and military march which is said to describe events during the seven-year siege of Harlech Castle between 1461 and 1468.

Men of Harlech is widely used as a regimental march, especially by British Army and Commonwealth regiments historically associated with Wales. Notably, it is the slow march of the Welsh Guards, the quick march of the Royal Welsh, and the march of the Royal Canadian Hussars (Montreal), The Governor General's Horse Guards, and The Ontario Regiment, for which it is the slow march.

The song gained international recognition when it was featured in the 1941 movie How Green Was My Valley and the 1964 film Zulu.

Der Opernsänger Bryn Terfel recorded Men of Harlech for his 2000 album We'll Keep a Welcome
