This came up in a discussion and I went looking for it, in several guises, and didn’t find it… It is a lovely little jig and offers a number of possible interpretations…

This one’s for ‘-maus’…

Another tune associated with the legendary piper Walter Jackson?

Yes, I think this was by Walker Jackson. Most of the tunes he wrote were quite daggy like this, so it is quite possible.
