ATHOLE VOLUNTEERS QUICKSTEP, THE. Scottish, March (6/8 time). F Major. Standard tuning. AAB. The 'B' part is identical with the 'B' part of the Irish jig "Eavesdropper (The)," except for the last four measures. Since the part is a repetition of chord outlines in descending thirds, however, it may simply be a coincidence and not an imitation. Or not.
