Thread Name: Lyr Req: Suvla Bay
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Suvla Bay
Sulva Bay is a misspelling - its Suvla Bay. And the word goes that you could have been arrested for singing this song during WW1- it was meant to be bad for troop morale, and bad for the country's morale during war time. My father taught me this song, and someone recorde me singing it at Gulgong festival one year. That recording is somewhere in a war museum in London, I was told. I could sing it and send you a tape if you wish - pm me, and I'll send you my email.
