GUEST,Observer The Flower of Scotland (65* d) RE: The Flower of Scotland 14 Feb 19


Both "Lammas Tide" and "Lock the Door Lariston" are border ballads about Border raids in which neither the politics or national agendas of the Monarchs and Courts of either kingdom (Scotland or England) featured.

The thread and ethics of loyalty along the Anglo-Scottish border between 1289 and 1653 ran family first, friends and allies second, King and Country came way, way down the pecking order, if it ever featured at all.
