A slightly tongue in cheek arrangement for pipes and military band of a well-known pipe march. Having appeared in fiddle collections by the 1870s, the tune was already an established part of the pipe repertoire. Aden, near the entrance to the Red Sea, was noted for its barren and desolate volcanic rocks, and was annexed to British India in 1839. In 1967, after violence between nationalists and British forces, it became what is now the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen. The arrangement was used as the display march-off for the Pipes and Drums of the 51st Highland Regiment and the Band of 51 Highland Brigade during the Nova Scotia International Tattoo 2003.
