Löwengeschwader Marsch

Recommended Posts

A not so well known march - Löwengeschwader - the March of Kampfgeschwader 26

In one of the photos, Walter Neusüß is depicted in an official  press photo from around October 1939 (third photo from start of clip). Was very surprised when I saw this

The original text of the March - obviously no longer played in the Bundeswehr (would definitely not be politically correct!!!) But historically speaking, very interesting indeed.
Found under following address: (here are thousands of old traditional German songs and marches, if anyone is interested in texts, all alphabetically listed - etwas zum mitsingen!)

Das Löwengeschwader
so sind wir genannt
und sind durch gewaltige Scharen
dem Briten als Schrecken
der Schiffe bekannt
vom Kanal bis zu Schottlands Gestaden
  So ziehen wir stärker
mit jeder Schlacht
am Himmel den sieghaften Bogen
am Boden liegt Englands
zerfallene Macht
nur wir selber beherrschen die Wogen

 

Refrain:
Das Zeichen des Löwen
auf silbernem Rumpf
so fliegen wir weit übers Meer
und tragen des Führers Wort zum Triumph
es gibt keine Inseln mehr
