This overture is constructed from Wings, the Regimental March of the Royal Engineers and the Corps song Hurrah for the CRE. Wings itself comprises two tunes- The Path across the Hills and Flügel! Flügel!.

Hurrah for the CRE is sung to the traditional South African tune Daar lê die ding. All the main melodic material is derived from one of these, although they are often spliced together in unusual ways and set in a manner progressing from dark to light.

The work was first performed at the ‘Sapper 300’ Concert at Rochester Castle, 17 July 2016.
