Lesley N. Origin: Scottish Soldier (15) RE: Scottish Soldier 18 Oct 99

Don't have much about the Soldier himself but the tune is a pipe tune The Green Hills of Tyrol which was written during the Crimean War (1853-1856) by a Pipe Major in a Scottish Regiment. He adapted part of the William Tell opera, after hearing a band play it.

I've read more about it but the brain can't seem to find the right connections at the moment. I'm sure someone else will come up with exactly what you'd like.
