The Band of The Royal Regiment of Canada in collaboration with the The Band of the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment United and Resolute Video

The Band of The Royal Regiment of Canada, in collaboration with The Band of The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment (one of our Allied Regiments) has just released a special video featuring the latest composition by Captain (retired) Bill Mighton.

United and Resolute was inspired by the text of a speech given to the Commonwealth by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth on April 5, 2020.“Together we are tackling this disease, and I want to reassure you, that if we remain united and resolute, then we will overcome it.”We’re very proud of this video and hope you’ll take a few moments to watch it and share it with your family and friends.
