BERSAGLIERI

Recommended Posts

Pay attention to the old fart at the end of the second unit.  Right around the 2:05 mark.
 


Another video.

The red coat band in the last video was The Royal 22nd Regiment (The Van Doos) of Quebec.

The tune was Viva a la Canadienne! the Regimental march.

I could imagine jogging and playing a brass instrument. My lungs aren’t conditioned for such activity.

I found this interesting.

 

The BERSAGLIERI, as you might could tell from the sound of their name, are Italian.

 

The feathers they wear on their hat, and which they also wear on their helmets, comes from this bird.

This picture shows the range of the capercaillie.

Notice there are none in Italy.

 

Hmmmm.
