Old sheet music - will pay £50
« on: Sunday 23 February 20 18:24 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for an old piece of sheet music called "Your King & Country Need You More Than I do" by Stanley V. Murrill. This would have been published between 1913 and 1916. The composer was my maternal grandfather who was killed in France November 1917.

I would pay any reasonable price for this. I would not consider £50 too much to pay.

I have a poor photocopy from the British Library.
Southern or Southan [Hereford , Monmouthshire & Glos], Jenkins, Meredith and Morgan [Monmouthshire and Glos.], Murrill, Damary, Damry, Ray, Lawrence [all Middx. & London], Nethway from Kenn or Yatton. Also Riley and Lyons in South Africa and Riley from St. Helena.

A slight bit of inflation.

Hope you find a copy soon.

I imagine youíve seen this thesis, but incase not

https://ttu-ir.tdl.org/bitstream/handle/2346/18894/31295013250724.pdf?sequence=1

That is a great find...it would be a good to find a version on YouTube...when you google the title it brings up the cover of the sheet music by Alamo images with a photo of the singer Daphne De Marie    ;D

Thank you all but I have long had that other information. Daphne de Marie was my grandmother or rather her stage name.

I have the entire doctoral thesis.

I just seek the original sheet music.

It might be a good idea to change the subject title to include the song title, that way if anyone googles it, it will bring them here.
