Composed by Dan R. McDonald. If this tune is already on the site by an other form (although my research), thanx to advise me for the changes. I was told the F key is the good one, but it’s sometimes played in D too.

“Winston In The ’50s”

This ain’t!!! This is not Winston ‘Scotty’ Fitzgerald’s setting of Neil Gow’s strathspey "Miss Erskine of Torry", which some choose to call "Winston in the 50’s"…

This is as protz said, Dan R. McDonald’s "Reichswall Forest " and NOTHING else…

Re: Reichswall Forest

Written by Dan R while he was serving in WW2 I believe. He was in Reichswall Forest when he wrote it. That’s a simple enough way to name a tune.
