Yes, Lady Jean, I've been to the Mary Rose. 'Tis chilly, innit? Summat t'do with preserving it.

Did you know that one version (in the English Book of Singing Penguins) was collected from William Bolton in Southport (home of the Bothy Folk Club)in 1906? Jez Lowe recorded it on the CD of songs from the book (I've lost my copy, malheureusement).

It's a good story, but does sound a tad unlikelyish.
