I know, while it was most certainly a great effort on the part of the piper, the tune suffered only in the translation to the pipes. I was merely pointing out that it is was possible, to play it.

Regarding Navy Dining In, isn’t there some traditional tune for the evening like The Beef of Old England or something like that? I had a copy of it around someplace since it was asked about many years ago.


Cheers! Phil

Yup - The Roast Beef of Old England. I remember playing a Dining-In about ten years ago and having to learn that, although I don't remember how it goes.

Yes, thanks, I have purchased sheet music for "Roast Beef" and have set it for pipes yesterday. Some notes needed to be "approximated" because they fall outside the available range, but as itr's not a National Anthem, I don't think anyone will be offended.
The tune was used for "Oh, The Hard Times Of Old England " a few years ago. ( Figures, eh?)

Klondike,

I find myself securely lashed beside you in this
particular... ol' boat... as we are often asked (or
seemingly required... and sometimes ordered)...
to play the National Anthem... when it just ain't
bleedin' playable... (Not to mention your cited
Code. :)

With the above given vid... while I applaud his
courage... the beginnings of it sounds (to me)
rather like some off-kilter children's folk song...
and the whole... therefore... falls well short of
the dignity ... that playing any national anthem
requires.

Having played for several (if not many :) U.S.
Navy ceremonies and occasions... and when
sometimes... toes to toes... and nose to nose...
with a senior officer (most usually an O-4s and
above)... who are just determined... and do not
countenance being gainsaid... that the SSB on
the pipes is what this occasion requires... and
are bordering on becoming obdurate... I have
changed my tack... and have been able to then
gently lead them to... "Anchors Aweigh"... and to
the final happiness... of all. (And my relief!! :)

Wishing you... and everyone of us else... the very
best of Good Fortune... when this difficulty again
arises... and as it certainly shall...

"The Navy ain't th' same... since they gave up floggin'!" :)
