This fine tune is a company march of one of the Scots Guards battalions. I once heard it played at the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace when men of that company were finding the guard, and very fine and impressive it sounds.   It is one of the "Tunes Of Glory", mentioned by Alec Guinness's Highland colonel as suitable to be played at his predecessor's military funeral, in the fine film of that name.

The Rankin Family can be heard singing it in Gaelic on YouTube at
