156th BRIGADE AT THE BATTLE OF ROMANI, THE. Scottish, Pipe March (2/4 time). Composed by Pipe Major Edwin J. MacPherson. The 156th (Scottish Rifles) Brigade was a unit of the British Army formed during the First World War, and disbanded afterwards. They saw service in several battles, including the Battle of Romani [1] in August, 1916, in which the British forces (Scottish, Australian and New Zealand) defended the Suez Canal against a combined German and Ottoman force. The success in arms thwarted the Central powers attempt to disrupt shipping in the Suez.
