A song by a survivor of the battle, Lieutenant Skinner of the 92nd Regiment, later the Gordon Highlanders. Composed in 1817 and set to the tune of 'Scots wae hae wi Wallace bled', its florid poetry is an interesting contrast to the song about the battle composed by Sergeant Grant (Roud 1106). The song was included in Ord’s collection of 1930 (Ord 1930, p.303), but has not been found elsewhere. [PRW]
