Subject: happy? – Dec 3 (John Maclean returns)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 03 Dec 05 - 09:22 AM

         The haill city's quiet noo: it kens that he's restin'
        At hame wi' his Glasgie freens, their fame and their pride!
        The red will be worn, my lads, an' Scotland will march again
        Noo great John Maclean has come hame tae the Clyde.

                "The John Maclean March," Hamish Henderson

Maclean's triumphant return to Glasgow from Peterhead Jail was 3 December 1918. (Text from Chapbook, Vol 3 No 6 , Edited by Arthur Argo, Aberdeen, c.1966 as transcribed from Hamish's singing.)
