Chant loignon

BC Freedom sensha-dō team singing Le Chant de l'Oignon during the match against Ooarai Academy

Le Chant de l'Oignon or Chanson de l'oignon (The Song of the Onion) is an anonymous French military song of the Revolution and the First Empire. It was one of the favorite tunes of the grenadiers of the Imperial Guard.

However the theme of this song is quoted in the note by the call of the horns in the opening of the opera of Etienne Nicolas Mehul "The hunt of the young Henri" created May 1, 1797 Favart room in Paris. Due to the success and popularity of the Chanson de l'Onion in the early 19th century, it seems unlikely that Mehul was not the author.

Legend has it that it was born shortly before the Battle of Marengo on June 14, 1800. Bonaparte saw grenadiers vigorously rubbing a crust of bread. "What the hell are you doing on your bread? he asked them. - It's onion, General. - Ah! All right, there is nothing better to walk a good way on the path of glory.

In Girls und Panzer, this song is used for BC Freedom High School.
