Subject: RE: Lyr Req: My Sari Marais
Hi Jo,

Thanks for the history.

The tune of "Sari Marais" I have known for years as it is the march for the Royal Marine Commandos ("Life on the Ocean Wave is the march for the Royal Marines). When the marines started training as commando's, they took the tune from the same source as they took their name.

Very special hearing it when you "pass out" - everyone feels that its being played just for themselves.

Thanks again.
