Subject: RE: Origins: The Hunting Day / Fine Hunting Day
I've enjoyed reading all the information kindly supplied by those who've written above me ~ thank-you!
I stumbled on this thread while doing a little research on this poem, which is much quoted by Sir Alfred Munnings in his 3-volume autobiography. He calls it "the best hunting song ever written" (and he knew a few)!
Also to note, the sporting artist Gilbert Holiday compiled a thin but (not surprisingly) beautifully-illustrated book published in 1933 and titled "We'll All go a-Hunting Today".
