The Sweep’s Hornpipe

Please note that this is NOT the same tune as the Sweep’s Hornpipe already on tune database (otherwise known as the Belfast Hornpipe, etc)

This tune is quite often played at the Royal Naval Volunteer pub session, Bristol, England, where it is always played undotted (i.e. as submitted here by me).

I would be interested to know whether any members are familiar with this tune, and - if so - whether they normally play it dotted or undotted.
