[Canadian] Merchant Marine Song

In case this video has not been reported previously, one that was brought to my attention by the local Propeller Club.

Yes it is Canadian (!) and yes there are the usual mish mash of comments, trying to outdo one another about who had the greater number of losses on either side, but I think it is poignant, well done and, for something found on the internet, reasonably genuine. I wonder what the sailors of those days would have thought about the way we are tackling piracy today.

Or perhaps if Hitler had said he was a pirate and not a tyrant he could have got away with a lot more?
