A decisive Scots victory, they lost one unit, the English lost thirteen.

Who would have thought it?

Nice game. At last ..... one successful Stuart king!  Grin

Excellent!
The downside is “Flowers of the Forest” doesn’t get composed.

That's a downside? A more miserable dirge I have rarely heard...

Kinda missing the point; dirge = a lament for the dead, especially one forming part of a funeral rite. That's what it's meant to be and is used as such the world over.

How about god save the queen as the most awful thing ever written, especially as a national anthem.

Just sing verse six, that'll do...

This is how a national anthem should be

Rubbish, all rubbish, the Marseille is the only good national anthem Cheesy

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KMGPnQAeRM" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KMGPnQAeRM</a>

As illustrated by the greatest film of all time.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HM-E2H1ChJM" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HM-E2H1ChJM</a>

Or possibly good ol' Serge, who sparked such outrage, truly giving the anthem its revolutionary nature back Cheesy

Anyway, sorry Norm, well done the Scots - that's quite a reversal! Hennery might even need to stop playing at foreign adventures and come home!

I mentally debated about posting that one, it’s superb.

I too very much like the Marseillaise but I still can’t see any clips of anything. Then again, other than that, my computer seems to be much quicker than it used to be so maybe it’s not so bad that all these clips don’t appear.

Despite being a rebellious Scot; all is forgiven for God Save the Tsar, a glorious piece of music never mind an anthem.

Even better:

Need to start a new thread about national anthems.
