Bonaparte Crossing the Rhine

This a is a march I picked up at the local session last week, It’s distinctly different from the hornpipe already here with the same name, but i’m happy to enter it in the comments there if there’s agreement that this is just a variation.
We played this with "Doon the Braes"

An old favourite. I’ve stopped being surprised that something isn’t here. But then, a few of us left awhile back and had Jeremy delete everything, and I mean EVERYTHING ~ comment and any contributed tunes. Sigh! Those are sad times and I miss some of those who chose to go. I have some suspicions this was here ages back, but I’m glad to see it returning… I’ll have to dredge out some of how I’ve taken it for a stroll in the past, at march tempo… ;-)
