The Band and Corps of Drums of the Royal Logistic Corps showed their support ahead of England's quarter finals in the World Cup by performing 'Three Lions' during the Changing of the Guard.

On Friday, the band played the tune - became the unofficial soundtrack of the team - accompanied with The Pipes and Drums of 152 and Corps of Drums of 157.

The performance was soon repeated by royal and military bands all across the country.

In London, the Bands of the Guards Division played the tune on Buckingham Palace’s forecourt, while the Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines offered their version at Raleigh Ceremonial Divisions.

'Three Lions' was released in 1996 by English band 'The Lightning Seeds' with comedians David Biddiel and Frank Skinner to mark the England football team's participation in that year's European Championships, held in England.

On Twitter, Mr Baddiel, said: “Thanks to Her Maj for letting so many of her bands play the song! I assume they have to seek permission.”
