Thread Name: Any February Songs?
Subject: RE: Any February Songs?
By Graeme Miles

'Cold February and all is not well
There's few will sleep easy this night
Down at the dockside, grim silent men standing
Under the pale yellow light,
There's scarcely a murmur of laughter there's none
Of whispering there's barely a sound
For their thoughts are away, out there in the bay
Where its said that the Lairdfield is down.'

Graeme Miles last written song. The true story of the needless loss of the Lairdsfield just off Redcar with all ten crew. Graeme tells us of the loss and the tragedy. Online Search for Lairdsfield will find recent 50 year remembrance. The court record tells the story.
