The Sinclair March or Red
Ribbon is a piobreached. The quick march I mentioned was "Colonel Sinclairs
March" different tune.

Juli: many years ago
when I was active on the Clan Sinclair tent circuit, I invested in many
books, including a bandsman's book that contained the score for many of the
standard pipeband pieces, including the Sinclair March. I asked many
pipers to play this and let me record it for use in the tent, but they all
said it was a difficult tune, and they lacked the experience/skill to do it,
so I wound up giving it to a friend who plays with the Sacramento Shrine
Band. The book was named as one volume of a two-volume set of the
Black Watch Pipe Band's Music, or something like that. My guess is
that most Grade I through III have copies of this for their usual
practice. Pipe teachers also would be a likely source for the
tune. President Emeritus David Bouschor says it's a "quick
march" but he doesn't say he has any CD's or tapes of the tune.
If anyone finds this in commercial stocks, I would appreciate knowing how to
