Thread Name: Origin: Bonny Ship the Diamond
Subject: RE: Bonny Ship the Diamond source?
I have it on an Alex Campbell LP but there isn't any mention of the source. All it says is "The Diamond, a Peterhead-based ship, was fishing for whales in the Davis Straits around the 1820's. Along with The Resolution and The Eliza Swan and seventeen others, she was lost in 1830 when a fine whaling fleet was locked in the ice at Melville Bay".
