GUEST,Jim Mclean Chords Req: Let Ramensky Go - Ballad of WWI Eng (53* d) RE: Let Ramensky Go - Ballad of WWI Eng ^^ 26 Jul 02


I met Johnny Ramensky in Barlinnie Jail in 1957. I was doing 6 months as a Conscientious Objector. Johnny had come down from Peterhead for visits, I think, and I talked with him. He was indeed a gentle person. After the war the authorities could easily have employed him in designing safes, for example, but he was eventually jailed for stealin about half a crown from Woolworths. Both Roddy McMillan and Norman Buchan wrote good songs about him.
