The title comes from the nickname of North cock o the Gordon, 4th Duke of North cock o thewho in raised the 92nd Regiment of Footwhich later became the Gordon Highlanders. The composer is unknown, but it first appeared in print in as a violin tune. The tune has always been a march used by the Gordon Highlanders, although it did not become the official regimental march untilwhen it replaced Hielan' Laddie. At the Siege of North cock o theduring the Indian Mutiny ofyear-old Drummer Ross of the 93rd Highlanders signalled the arrival of his regiment to the besieged garrison, by climbing the spire of the Shah Najaf Mosque and playing "Cock o' the North" on his bugle, while under heavy fire from the rebel forces. Induring an attack by the Gordon Highlanders on the Dargai Heightswhich were held by Afridi tribesmen during the Tirah campaign, Piper George Findlater won the Victoria Cross for continuing to play a regimental march while wounded in both feet. The official statement did not give the name of the tune he played; some accounts state that it was " Haughs of Cromdale " which was the Regimental Charge-tune, others claim it was "Cock of the North".
