Michael in Swansea Origins: Admiral Benbow (74* d) RE: Admiral Benbow lyrics 06 Apr 01

Verse 2 last line

We saw they were French men of war cruising by

Third and fourth verses:

We took our leave of them and made quick dispatch
And so steered our course to the island of Vatch
But turning to windward as near as we could lie
On the fourteenth of August ten sail we did spy

They hoisted their pennants and their colours they spread
They hoisted their bloody flag at the main topmast head
We hoisted our Jack flag at the mizzen peak
And brought up our squadron in a line most complete
