Alte Kameraden

"Alte Kameraden" ("Old Comrades") is the title of a popular German military march. It is included in the Armeemarschsammlung as HM II, 150.

History

The march was written around 1889 in Ulm, Germany, by military music composer Carl Teike. Teike wrote many pieces for the marching band of Grenadier-Regiment K├Ânig Karl (5. W├╝rttembergisches) No. 123. When bringing his newly composed "Alte Kameraden" to the regiment, the Kapellmeister Oelte simply told him: "We've got plenty enough of musical marches, put this one in the stove!". This episode eventually led to Teike taking his leave of military music composition.
