Thread Name: Lyr Add: Suvla Bay (Suda Bay) - Australian
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Suvla Bay (Suda Bay) - Australian
Ian from Newcastle Australia.
Suvla Bay was originally sung as Dunkirk Bay in the ist world war by scottish soldiers and by the 2nd world war it got changed some how to suvla bay, Alberts Music of London hold the rights to the music and A bloke under the non de plume of Jack Spade is credited with writing it. I was told 3 English pop muso's wrote it in the late 30's early 40's. I have been trying to find out more about Jack Spade
A number of Top Australian Country singers have recorded the song.also research suggest that Suvla Bay was the bay that Dunkirk was in. if anyone can help I would be grateful
