Soldiers of the King is a song written and composed by Leslie Stuart. The song is often sung and published as 'Soldiers of the Queen' depending on the reigning monarch at the time.

The tune was originally composed by Stuart as a march celebrating the opening of the Manchester Ship Canal. The lyrics were added at a later date and the title changed.

Was used as the theme to the film Breaker Morant (film).

Approximate lyrics (transcript):

Britain's always loyally declaim
About the way we rule the waves
Every Briton's song is just the same
When singing of her soldiers brave
All the world that's heard it
Wonders why we sing
Some have learned the reason why
We're not forgetting it
We're not letting it
Fade away or gradually die (2)
So when we say that England's master
Remember who has made it so
It's the soldiers of the Queen, my lads
Who've been, my lads, who've seen, my lads
In the fight for England's glory lads
Of its worldwide glory let us sing
And when we say we've always won
And when they ask us how it's done
We'll proudly point to every one
Of England's soldiers of the Queen.
