The South Australian Register for 13 July 1897 gives details of a Jubilee song by George Essex Evans Victoria, Empress of the Free with music by George Christian Neech. I have failed to find any further reference to it and cannot trace the music. Can anybody help?
On The Plains
Half-lost in film of faintest lawn, A single star in armour white Upon the dreamy heights of dawn Guards dim frontier of the night, Till plumed ray And golden spray Have washed its trembling light away.
