GUEST, Jim Hancock Origins: Various songs for CD (12) RE: Origins: Various songs for CD 24 Apr 07


Bonny ship Diamond: Launched 1825, (I believe she was built in Dundee) Crushed by the ice in Baffin Bay winter of 1830 along with a number of other whalers including all those mentioned in the song. Amazingly all the crew survived. The song is genuine trad and I always assumed was written between those dates.
Oral Tradition has changed the Rattler to the Battler in some versions.

All the best

Jim Hancock
