Excellent choice. It's a great tune.

Men of Argyll is a nice tune. Played it last year. Very few play it.

You have some good choices mentioned here, but I will give one word of caution, Siege of Delhi, though a good tune, usually results in the opportunity for a load of crossover noises if you are not careful.
Also Oly, I don't think PC welcome to Lochaber is a Peter MacLeod tune it is a much more recent compostion. But it is a nice beginning 2/4 march.

Here's a few for your consideration:
  • Walter Douglas, M.B.E. - Donald MacLeod
  • The Iron Division - G.S. McLennan
  • P/M J. McWilliams - Donald MacLeod
  • Lochote - P/M Clem Sim
  • J. Carnegie's March - P/M Hance Gates
  • The Edinburgh City Police Pipe Band - Roderick Campbell
  • The St. Catharines Pipe Band - Capt. Hugh Macpherson
Just a few suggestions from my own list of possibles for next season. I welcome any thoughts, yea or nay, about the suitability of any of these!!

Good luck!
Vic

I think the Edinburgh City Police a great tune, but not in a grade 4 contest. I have always played a lot of Roddy Cambpell's tunes over the years and like them.

I personally like King George the IV's Army. That was my grade 4 2/4,and it did me pretty good!

Nor would I expect Millbank Cottage in a grade 4 contest either.

I have played Siege of Delhi and Carradale Bay. Siege of Delhi is an easy first tune to play. Carradale bay is relatively easy but a bit tougher
