Pipe Tunes.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Was Just reading the Cameronians thread and somebody mentioned "Within a mile o' Edinburgh toon"

    My personal favourite has to be "Cock o' the North." Any more good ones worth a mention?
  2. Killaloe is the one that springs to mind for me but then again you need a saffron kilt and a caubeen to do that one justice.
  3. Highland Cathedral - hairs on the back of my neck and heart rate go up every time I hear it
  4. O'Sullivan-Beare's March
  5. "Farewell to the creeks" (later given words by Hamish Henderson-"The 51st Highland Division's Farewell to Sicily)
  6. Really moving, Dick Gaughans version of the song on "Sail on" is great. Not forgetting "The Bloody Fields of Flanders",another great wee pipe tune,words by Hamish Henderson and retitled..."The Freedom come- all -ye". Which was apparently rejected a while back as a potential Scottish national anthem.

    Best tune though "THE BLACK BEAR." :wink:
  7. But composed by GERMANS :)
  8. Has to be "Garyowen" in there for me - great marching tune.

    Regimental March of The Ulster Defence Regiment, (for the uninformed).

    I remember the time we were given the Freedom of....

  9. I always thought that "The Sash" filled that role :lol:
  10. Apparently Edinburgh OTC are using this now
  11. Alas and alack, this German tune and very recent arrangement is a crock of $h1te, and is known among the cogosenti as "Highland Fcuking Cathedral".

    When a Jock colleague of mine first heard it he liked it, but hated it within days as it was cheap. horrible, hackneyed tripe.

    For my part I find myself, as ever sitting on the fence.

    Brian Boru's march is looked upon favourably within the Whiffler dynasty..
  12. 'The Barren Rocks of Aden' is a favourite, amongst others.
  13. Galgenberger (is that with cheese)

    Now I hope you are not being insulting... the Sash is an Orange Order tune which has nothing to do with my Regiment.
  14. That's a smashing one ViroBono. Up with the best of them. I also like
    'the Highland brigade at Magersfontain' and 'Miss Drummond of Perth'
  15. Auld-Yin

    Dumbarton's Drums

    Blue Bonnets o're the Border

    Interesting to see which comes out on top if there is a merger.
