Erzherzog-Albrecht-Marsch (0:00~2:38)

The Archduke Albrecht March (German: Erzherzog-Albrecht-Marsch) is an Austro-Hungarian military march, composed by Karel Komzák II (also known as Karl Komzák[1]) as his opus 136.[2] It was named in honour of Archduke Albrecht, Duke of Teschen (1817–1895).

The march was used extensively by the German forces in World War I and World War II, especially during the departures and arrivals of U-boats. The march is also used by the Chilean Navy during military parades or marches.
