Thread Name: Songs about lifeboat disaster, 1886?
Subject: RE: Songs about lifeboat disaster, 1886?
Thanks for the contribution Bill, but it's the wrong Mexico (and the wrong country - your one is in Wexford). Still an decent song though.

OK McGrath, maybe not tripe, but it's certainly not something I could get any real feeling behind. The Victorians were too fond of their airbrushed "death or glory" thing, and that's a real turn-off.

Nutty, that's interesting, although incomplete (chorus is not given). How did you find that? I've had a look on the Bodleian site, and I can't seem to find the search option (apart from a general search on the main pages, which doesn't bring it up).
