Old French

This is a most unusual tune I played way back in the 1970s when I was in the Adelaide University Regiment Pipe Band. I have never heard it played since those days but the tune stayed i my head, Maybe someone out there can give us more information on the tune, as I do not know who composed it or what country it s from. The band called it Old French.
