Also known as Boney’s Retreat March.
Boney's Retreat has been added to 16 tunebooks.
Just another grand wee Fifing March which does not appear to be related to any other Bonaparte tune here ….. but I could be wrong. 😛
Sounds like it could be related to The Campbell’s Farewell to redcastle:

The Humours of Tullycrine:
…but that’s starting to clutch at straws. You can find a connection between The Trumpet Hornpipe and J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion if you try hard enough.
