Thread Name: Origins: Small Island
Subject: RE: Origins: Small Island
Back to the song... is it possible that "Small Island" travelled to the British Virgin Islands through the singing of Trinidadian calypsonians performing there during WWII and was adapted into the version that Gordon Bok heard from Harold Williams? The reference to Churchill's speech could suggest that.
