Yes and I suppose Sharp's/Terry's chanteys, or at least some of them, were constantly available through the community song books like The Daily Express one.
Is there a date on the Blake reminiscence? Of course the seamen could have been from anywhere. There are plenty of sea songs in the Healy books but I don't recall any chanteys.
