I heard this song by Alisdair Gillies, on youtube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-r56YpljdEk - Josh MacRae

The medley seems to be inspired by Battle Of Glencoe

The song is in the book 'The Jolly Herring', published by A&C Black and still available on Amazon.

Ye gods. An old ghost reapports. Written by Tony Hatch. A followup hit from my Talking Army Blues for my friend Josh MacRae.

Wow! One of the first guest artistes at Harrogate folk club back in the 60s and one of my heroes.

Am I right in thinking that when Josh recorded it he'd hurt his hand so that the guitar was played by Rena Swankie who he performed with in the Reivers?
