Sailor Ron (WWII) CW-9 names of ships for a song (58* d) RE: (WWII) CW-9 names of ships for a song 05 Nov 09


Keith, many years ago [late 60s] when I was in the MN I heard a song about PQ17, sung, as I recall by a Chief Engineer, who as a junior engineer, had served during the war, though I don't know if he actually sailed on the Murmansk run. He sang 'The Jervis Bay' and one about PQ17. I wrote both of them down, unfortunatly my note book, 'long with my watch & tobacco pouch , were stollen later in Lourenco Marques. All I can remember was the tune was "The church is one foundation" and one couplete......
                Convoy is to scatter, in fear we heard the shout
                Convoy is to scatter the Tirpiz she is out
Ocer the years I've racked my brain trying, without success to remember any other bits.
