In memory of Johnny…

Must be one of the first tunes composed by Johnny Cunningham, who died 4 years ago yesterday. It’s a slowish jig, almost a 6/8 march, in fact, which he played on mandola on his first solo recording “Thoughts From Another World”. Not 100% convinced that it’s in E dor, but the 2 sharps fit. Someone may wish to advise.
I’m fairly sure “P.M.” stands for brother Phil, and not any Pipe Major.
