»Devised as a tribute to our gracious Patron Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and dedicated to Robert H Mackay who suggested the title and the original tune.«

There is a typo in the tune title in the book – the place is called »Ardnilly« according to the original publication by Wm. Marshall.

Note (additional to the book and the Manual). collected by Helen Russell from staff teaching The Diamond Jubilee book at Summer School 2012.
