Hi Margaret,

Thank you for the information. I am not sure about the senior dance but if you have the music for Sloane Square available I would very much appreciate a scanned copy if it is no trouble.

Many thanks,
Phill

I found 1 more. Sloane Square is in the London RSCDS Jubilee Book
from 1979 I have the tune if you need it scanned and sent.

I have also the Pensioner's Reel in Skye Bk 2 which is 8x32 not the
Senior Citizen's Reel which you say is 5z32. Could they be the same?
