Subject: RE: Lyr Req: McAlpine's Fusileers
Dominic did record it under the title "McAldine's Fusiliers". Probably for the libel reasons mentioned earlier. As to who wrote the song I think we can say that Dominic claimed it and, at the time, nobody contradicted him.

The introductory poem - I have been told that it was written by Pecker Dunne. I have no way of knowing if that's true.
