By the left! by Bashford
I need some assistance with the march By the Left! by Rodney Bashford that featured in the 2014 Trooping.
The melodies (in order of appearance are:
1. Retreat bugle call
2. Bless 'em all
4. The green grassy slopes of the Boyne
5. Hurrah for the CRE / Marching to Pretoria.
Can anyone identify the 3rd tune beginning at 01:50 ?
It bears an uncanny resemblance to the Gordon Lightfoot song Alberta Bound, which
was written a few years after the Bashford march. Coincidence or common root?
