Here`s a Korean War story, from George McElroy of Oakville, Ont.:

It was the farewell parade for 2 Royal Canadian Regiment at Camp Petawawa. After the 1st and 2nd battalions of the regiment had presented arms to each other, Lieutenant-Colonel Bingham, commanding officer of the 1st, shouted: “Three cheers for Col. Keane and his Royal Canadians!” The 1st doffed caps and gave three resounding cheers.

Lt.-Col. Keane, CO of the 2nd, then shouted: “Three cheers for Col. Bingham and his Royal Canadians!” The 2nd cheered lustily.

Suddenly, a high-pitched voice somewhere among the 1st Bn. sang out: “Three cheers for Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians!”

As far as McElroy knows, Col. Bingham never found the owner of that voice.
