Edain Lyr/Tune Req: The Saucy Prince's Own (14) RE: Lyr/Tune Req: The Saucy Princes Own 05 Mar 05

Malcolm, here's what Gregg told me;


As requested - I've lost the original reference - and I've filled it from memory and using the Greig Duncan Collection, Volume 1, page 148. There's another version in Madden almost exactly like this.




I'm sure there are a couple of errors here and there, the recording I have was don in either the late 70s or early 80s so isn't great and i have to admit it was a quick transcription. The Eagle is indeed the French standard, they would march into battle with someone carrying the flag and someone an eagle on a pole that had been kissed (i think) by Napoleon himself.
