GM no I am not Akenaton, who I believe has always posted to this forum under one constant name. As to who you like and do not like, that is of no concern to me.

As to the kayaks how I ken wha exactly wis therr onyweys - Jim McLean himself told us all that they were all English visitors and that he and his pals only called themselves "The Glasgow Eskimos" AFTER USS Proteus berthed in the Holy Loch in March 1961.

Taking credit and stealing the thunder of others by false appropriation is, I think rather despicable, making the song itself nothing more than a "braggart's" chant. Thankfully, in all the decades that I have been attending folk clubs, concerts and festivals, I have never heard it sung.
