GUEST,John Gray / Australia Lyr Req: any song about the Kokoda Trail (52* d) RE: Help: Kokoda Trail 07 Nov 01


Bob B. An aside to the poem you listed, Lanes of Woolloomooloo.
One of the lines is; You'll find him now in Bell's Hotel. As a young sailor in Sydney in the 60's I drank in the Rockers, the sailors hotel over the road from the Bells. In those days the Bells was owned by the ex-world boxing champion - Jimmy Carruthers. When we got thrown out of the Rockers, for fighting, we'd end up in the Bells nursing a beer and a shirtfull of bruised ribs. Aaaahhhh the old days.
