Thread Name: Lyr Req: Recruiting Sergeant
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Recruiting Sergeant
"Arthur McBride" was collected as "The Recruiting Sergeant" by John Ord, "Bothy Songs and Ballads.". The latter name is used by Palmer in his "The Rambling Soldier," his collection of "songs of the lower ranks," published by Penguin Books, England, 1977.
Both names are used for the song.
