A tune from a rare collection.

Back in late 1940's Capt Doug Thoreson, ex Pipe Major 4 RAR and 2/4 RAR was taught by Don Sergent of New Zealand. Doug produced the "Don Sergent Collection of Bagpipe Music" in the 1980's at the expense of the Army Band Corps.

Over time I would like to share some of Don's tunes, in memory of his talent, as the collection is quite rare.

Don has tunes from 1943 to the mid 80's.

Here is a small taste - "John Glengarry's Farewell" a 6/8 march.
