ROUND WITH A HEALTH TO GLORIOUS WELLINGTON, &c. (Deoch Slainte do'n armailt tha Flannriose sa Ceannas). Scottish, Military Troop Air (6/8 time). F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABCCDD. This tune "will be recognized as an air of the editor's, published as a patriotic song with his Waterloo March, intended to commemorate the anniversary of that glorious day, and to be sung with a solemnity suitable to the words. As it, however, makes a grand military troop when performed a little quicker, it is here presented in that style" (Fraser). The Gaelic title literally translates as "A health to the army in Flanders and its commander(s)."
