Billy the Bus Help: The Russian Convoys (including PQ17) (91* d) RE: Help: The Russian Convoys (including PQ17) 09 Sep 03

Thanks for the refresh Gareth - a noble thread!

Major creep from WWII North Atlantic to WWI South Pacific. Count Felix von Luckner and Seeadler (mentioned above) are enshrined in New Zealand folklore, alas not in song. His capture in Fiji, internment in NZ, and subsequent brief escape in the scow Moa in 1917, made him a 'Folk Hero', despite being 'Enemy'. His chivalrous approach to prisoners may have helped. Anyway, here's a Yarn about the Moa incident.

Cheers - Sam
