Tune of the Day: Sussex by the Sea

English military march

This song, written in 1907 by William Ward-Higgs, became popular during World War I, having already been adopted by the Royal Sussex Regiment as an unofficial “nick” march. It quickly became well known throughout Sussex, and is now regarded as a county anthem, regularly sung at celebrations.

Thanks to Mike for suggesting this tune!
