This next tune in the continuing series of Tunes of the First World War is “The 1st Battalion (72nd) Seaforth Highlanders Entry into Baghdad, March 1917.” This tune is closely related to another entry in this series, “Major MacRae’s Farewell to the 72nd Highlanders.” Both of these tunes are about the 1st Battalion Seaforth Highlanders and both of these tunes have their roots in the Mesopotamian Campaign.

How many of us wish we had more personal time to practice our music? Are you a bagpiper or drummer who is constantly pressured to find the time in a busy life to schedule regular, consistent rehearsal to learn new music, or practice your current repertoire? Engaging in mental practice sessions is something that can fit into even the busiest of schedules, and give the additional time we crave.

The next tune in our continuing series on the Pipe Tunes of the First World War, and our Battle of the Somme mini-series, is “The Taking of Beaumont Hamel.” This tune commemorates the capture of Beaumont Hamel in November 1916 but it also serves as a bookend to one of the great tragedies of the Battle of the Somme.

Let’s say you had a question about, well, anything. These days, all of us will automatically move to our phones or keyboards and consult Google for the information. We just do it. We never think, “Oh, I don’t feel like typing in a query to Google, I’ll do it tomorrow.” But that is the way pipers will treat sitting down to learn a new tune, or improving their technique.
