What a surprise - for me - to find this tune here !
It was the regimental march of the King’s (Liverpool) Regiment in which my father served in WWII.
He often used to hum it and sing the words to us at home when we were kids.
Thanks for the memory !

Also glad to see this tune again. learned this at age ten in the beginning of my fife and drum days in 1970. The version we played was with dotted rhythm, giving it a bit more "swing". Lovely tune.

What you heard or saw as "dotted" is the double jig rhythm; the measure is divided into two triplets, and the first note of each triplet is emphasized. Putting that into the notation is not unusual when it’s set by or for someone without familiarity with a double jig, but not necessary if you’re using the notation to augment learning by ear.

This setting is how I’ve been playing it lately. I think this is closer to what’s recorded on Purgatory Chasm, but in the end I don’t care. I like the feeling of this version better. 🙂
