Agora have put up another one of my back-list today.
I originally called it ‘Girl on the Orlop deck’ but we’ve changed it to ‘Hearts of Oak’ from the popular song that was being sung in the pubs at the time of the Battle of Trafalgar.
Come cheer up me lads, t’is to glory we steer.
To add something more to this wonderful year,
Tis to honour we call you, not press you like slaves,
For who are so free as the sons of the waves,
Hearts of Oak are our ships, Jolly tars are our men,
We’ll fight and we’ll conquer again and again.
It’s the true life story based on a girl who disguised herself as a boy and joined the Navy. She ended up on the Orlop Deck on the Victory at the time of the Battle of Trafalgar.
