The re-birth of a Regiment

Is nothing new to us

We have come and gone before

And never made a fuss

They have even changed our name

Made the Regiment large and small

But they can never ever erase

The Rifleman’s spirit

That lives within us all

Now we are called the Rifles

What’s in this special name

The Buglers call to battle

Is sounded just the same

It is our fighting spirit

And those glorious days of old

The Regiments name may have gone

But not the, “Swift and Bold”.
