Iím guessing the link didnít get posted.

There are 3 I know of:
1. Freedom Come All Ye - Bloddy Fields of Flanders
2. Banks of Sicily - Farewell to the Creeks
3. John MacLeanís March - Scotland the Brave

But those are common tunes so probably not the one youíre asking about.

John MacLean's March is loosely based on Scotland the Brave, which was not known then as it is now. It (the song) was written before it became a post-war music hall hit.
