    Should there be trouble

    Hello.

    'Robin reminded his men to keep their ears sharpened for the call of his horn, should there be trouble'.

    Can I rewrite the highlighted part like 'if there should be trouble' and 'if there is trouble' ? Which of these sounds better for you?

    Thanks, Alex.
