Rank Royal Oak/Turkish Man of War/Cpt Mansfield's Fight (40) Origins: Turkish man of war 02 Apr 11

There is a song in the DT called The 23rd of February about a British sea battle with Turkish men of war. I have heard the song called Turkish man of war and with a first line of 'Twas on the twenty fourth of March me lads, so there may be other titles dates etc.. I don't know if this is a recent song or if it relates to an actual event. Some of the Turkish ship names look a bit un-turkish e.g. The Green Pea, The Rose and Crown and The Harp and Lyre.
