Question about "Force 10 from Navarone:"

This

plays the entire intro of that movie, which summarizes the events of "The Guns of Navarone" before leading into the actual main titles of its sequel. At 2:26 in, Robert Shaw fades out and the main title march begins.

My question is, I know I've heard that march before. I haven't watched "Force 10" for over five years, but I do own "Guns" and have seen it about three times in the past few years, but I don't remember this music as being from that. Was the intro march of "Force 10" written by Ron Goodwin, is it used in another recent movie that I might have seen, or is it an actual WWII march that I would have heard somewhere else? I want to say I heard it in Goonies, but I'm not sure.

Part of it is rather similar indeed to that music in The Goonies, but that was borrowed from another film, from a Max Steiner score if I'm not mistaken?

It's indeed quite similar to Steiner's Don Juan - I never noticed that before. There's a brilliant suite from the Steiner score on Gerhardt's Errol Flynn album, though the original score has been released as well (I should get that, it's among the few Steiner pieces I heard that really impress me).
