Well spotted, MMario. Roud 2433.

Alternative titles
The Marigold
Turkish Men of war
The Good Luck Ship
Captain Mansfield's Fight with the Turks at Sea
(And I flicked through Ashton as well and missed it!!!)
The twenty-fourth of February.

The version in ST is from Baring Gould's Songs of the West p226 and as it varies quite a bit from the other versions in things like being near the line I suspect BG has had a hand in it.

Chris, if you would like a scan of it please pm me your email address.
