    Does anyone know where we can purchase this march? It is available through Banks Music but only as part of a collection of Goerge Allen marches.

    Correct !
    I have a "March card" size bass part in front of me as I type.

    The heading is obliterated in places, but I THINK it reads :-

    The Brass Bands "Popular" March Journal
    Published by Geo.Allen, (?) Pears Terrace
    New Shildon
    Co. Durham

    AND, just for good measure, in the top right hand corner it reads :-
    "Engraved and Printed at Leipzig by Oscar Brandstetter"

    Time I got a life eh ?
