This just in:
Rogue's March https://youtu.be/f0ApSVk9deU

Love that, but I never realised it was a song.

Thank you, Petes and Greg!

Love that, but I never realised it was a song.
Amusingly, I knew this song more than a decade before my interest in English music began.
It appears in one of the early Sharpe movies http://hicketypip.tripod.com/Songbook/rogues.htm although I first heard this song by itself and only then checked where it's from. My opinion of the movies themselves is probably best kept for another topic :)
This is also a nice sung version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaplEF4w9RY

I'm playing all the wrong notes but not necessarily in the wrong order.

Thank you all - some great stuff this month! On to the next theme; as ever stick late contributions on the end of this one - no problem.

Kirkpatrick et al did a jolly version on the Umps and Dumps album and sang a verse and a chorus at the end. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJnG33gkmqs

Great playing, Eshed - that tune is definitely on my list to learn someday!

Video sadly unavailable...as a sideline I've heard the tune called "Twenty I got" in some areas...presumably from the first line of the song... :|glug

Did you know it's the tune that was used to drum dishounourably discharged soldiers off the army post?

Now I do, although it sounds like a terrible chore for the band.
"Uhm, guys, there's a trial for Lieutenant Hopkins on Wednesday, so I need two bugles and a drum on call in case they throw him out. Any volunteers?"

Thank you Jesse!

^^^ Now that one doesn't work for me! Must be a regional block, but funny that there's a video for each region and yet we're not allowed to view the other one.

I find the following very moving, and it's performed here by our very own (fabulous) Brian Peters.
