"Will o the wisp"

"The Skipper"

"I fear no foe"

"Bankoories" .         

These songs were sung by my friends father in January 1903 at a concert at the Oddfellows Hall, Wagga Wagga as reported by the Wagga Wagga Advertiser.   A challenge I think to trace! If ANYONE can help that would be lovely.
Thanks Keith

Hi, Keith -
It presents an indexing nightmare when people request multiple, unrelated items in a single thread. Q answered your "Wisp" request in this thread (click).

Can you give us information about the others? It would be best if you were to start a thread for each piece, and tell us what you remember about each one. With just a title, it can be very hard to find something and be sure it's what was requested.

Is this (click) the "I Fear No Foe" that you're seeking?

I FEAR NO FOE
(Words by Edward Oxenford, Music by Ciro Pinsuti)

I fear no foe in shining armour,
Tho' his lance be swift and keen;
But I fear and love the glamour,
Thro' thy drooping lashes seen!

Be I clad in casque and tasses,
Do I perfect cuirass wear,
Love thro' all my armour passes,
To the heart that's hidden there!
Love thro' all my armour passes,
To the heart that's hidden there!

I fear no foe in shining armour,
Tho' his lance be swift and keen;
But I fear and love the glamour,
Thro' thy drooping lashes seen!

Would I fend a blow so given?
Would I raise a hand to stay?
Tho' my heart in twain be riven,
And I perish in the fray.

I fear no foe except the glamour,
Of the eyes I long to see,
I am here, love, without armour,
Strike and captive make of me,
Strike and captive make of me!

Joe, the "Will O' the Wisp" I posted may not be the song sought; that is why I didn't post it here. There are other tunes- see sheet music at American Memory. No way to be sure about this tune.
------------------------------------

Google-
Look up "bankoories" and clippings at NOAA about fish market arrivals and prices includes one "Salt bankoory handline cod $4 per cwt" -but scanning the articles, I found several "Salt bankdory handline cod,..." but none with the spelling "bankoory."
The song could be about these salt cod.

"The Skipper," song, words by F. J. Dennett, music by W. H. Jude, sheet music voice and piano, 7p., London, H. Beresford (18-?), in The National Library of Australia.
You can access it there.

I would guess that this is the song on your list.
