Gibb Sahib Chanteys in Royal Navy? (96* d) RE: Chanteys in Royal Navy? 26 Aug 17


At the risk of fueling off-topic discussion... :o

A cursory Google search suggests that the/an earlier version of the numbered chant was "1, 2, 6, heave." There are references to this in books between 1925 and the 1950s.

Time to invent a new folklore to accommodate the "1"?
