Mick Pearce (MCP) Origins: Cadgwith Anthem (66* d) RE: Origins: Cadgwith Anthem 28 Feb 19

Thanks to Ged Fox's link in Song searching - 'Beauty of Kashmir?' to his scan of the Naval Song Book version, I now add that version for completeness. I've transposed it from Eb to F to align with the versions above.

The scan was at a bit of an oblique angle, but I think I got it correctly, except possibly the note on To (in To the caves...) which I've got here as e, but just possibly could be d (that is I think the original was d, but it might be c).
