Thread Name: Origins: Admiral Benbow
Subject: Tech: Admiral Benbow
At last I have found some time to have a go at a pet project I thought about some time ago. Out of all great sea going characters I believe Benbow is on of the most fascinating.
So what I'd like to do is collate as many songs ( and versions of )that folk are aware of.....
The two most frequently sung that I have to date are
Admiral Benbow 1
We sailed to Virgina etc
Admiral Benbow 2
My name it is Benbow etc
I will ultimately put everything together and make available to all so if you can help please, to save filling the thread, contact me at
