The RAPC quick march is "Imperial Echoes"

Imperial Echoes (1913) is the title of a piece for solo piano by Arnold Safroni. In 1928 the tune was adapted as a march by James Ord Hume (1864–1932) and recorded for His Master's Voice by the Band of the Royal Air Force, conducted by Squadron Leader R.P. O'Donnell, M.V.O. In 1940 the opening and closing parts of this recording were chosen to introduce and close the BBC's daily news programme Radio Newsreel.

Imperial Echoes became a regular part of the repertoire of military bands and was adopted by the Royal Army Pay Corps as its regimental quick march.
