This is the Norwegian Royal Guard Regiment (equivalent to the British and Canadian Guards regiments). It is interesting how a cheesy Hollywood theme (from “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly”) can sound impressive when played by an elite military band.
Those are US made Garand M-1 rifles (WWII), and they are heavy weapons (9 pounds each). When that one fellow goes on his own – You’ve never seen a rifle spun that fast before! Incredible; Unbelievable!!!
This clip runs for 8 and a half minutes, and if you don’t sit and watch it spell bound then I suggest you contact an undertaker and demand his immediate services!

Yes, it is interesting how a military band/precision group, can always entertain a crowd.
I can not get the link to open, it’s like the whole thing has been scrubbed from the net. Anyone out there have this saved on their computer?
Here’s the link again I’ve just tried it and it works fine
