Thread Name: Origins: Bonnie Hieland Laddy / Highland Laddie
Subject: title request

I was reading the book "Roger Sudden" by Canadian author Thomas Raddall. In it he mentions a folk song that was played by an English Army Band. He doesn't mention the title, but gives some of the lyrics:

"Will ye play me fair, Bonnie laddie, Highland laddie?"

Can anyone help me with the title of this song, and/or where I might find the melody.

Many thanks
