Default Brave Tars of Old England

I've been asked to play this tune for a Navy function, but don't know the tune. I've been unsuccessful finding it, including searching this forum. Does it have another name, maybe? Can anyone help me, please?

Thank you,

Brave Tars of Old England is the same tune as Roast Beef of Old England, an old Hanoverian triumphal from 1715 also known as The English flag triumphant. Sometimes the verses are interchanged.

This request comes up quite a lot, and there are several threads
roast beef 1

roast beef 2

roast beef 3

roast beef 4

roast beef 5 and I'm sure there's even more threads lurking..
