Default Lord Lovats Lament

I wonder if anyone can tell me anything about the background on this tune. I've been reading all the posts about Lord Lovat and Bill Millen and their involvement in the D-Day landing of WWII. Is this tune related to that in some way?

No.

If you go to pipesdrums.com and click on the "music" tab and go to the set tunes you can find the histories of all the competition set tunes for the last several years, including Lord Lovat's Lament.

There's two "Lord Lovat's Laments", the piobaireachd that bob864 refers to and the well known 4/4 march. Which one are you referring to?

Thanks for your replies. I did not know there is a piobreached by the same name so I guess I am referring to the March. It's one of my favorite tunes and I was just curious about it

And the short answer is no, both tunes are considerably older.
