W.H. Turpin

William H. Turpin is believed to have hailed from London and worked for a railway company in the early 20th century. Apparently he often composed marches in a pub, and may even have named his march Dinah's Delight after a barmaid there - it seems she thought his new march was delightful!

He is reckoned to have published more than a hundred works, and some of his best known marches are Galanthia, Roehampton, La Festive, Dinah's Delight, Children's Love, The Broadway Hustler, Le Tambour Major, The Royal Union, Oswald and Trauersang.
