Rank Royal Oak/Turkish Man of War/Cpt Mansfield's Fight (40) Origins: The 23rd of February 31 Mar 11


This song is in the DT. It concerns a battle between English ships and Turkish men of war.I haven't been able to find any information on this song. Is it recent, or is there a broadside out there somewhere?

I've also heard the song sung with the title: The Turkish man of war and starting 'Twas on the twenty fourth of March me lads.

The Turkish ships don't sound very Turkish i.e. The Green Pea, The Rose and Crown and The Harp and Lyre.
