Flash Company Lyr Req/Add: My Meatless Day (12) RE: Req/ADD: My Meatless Day 18 May 09

I've said it before, Mudcat is good for you!
I am reading a book by Liza Picard about life in Elizabethan London, in which there is reference to an instruction being issued tha Wednesday should be a meatless day in addition to Friday and Saturday 'to help the fishermen'. The idea was to encourage men to go to sea, so that when they were 'pressed' into the Navy they would know which end of a rope to pull.
I ccommented to Sheila that I had heard this song sung by (I thought) Gus Elan, and lo, here it is!
