    Thanks for your reply. I was very taken with this recording and have worked it into a tune here https://soundcloud.com/cottishatureboy/tiger-sharks-dicks-tale with full credit to you and others for all sources used. I hope you like it. That's a very special recording you released there and I found it very inspiring!

    All the old English sailors had a generic accent that never did identify exactly where they came from. They picked it up over the years of just speaking to each other, similar thing happened in the Army. This old boy's name was Dick. I met him in a pub in Portsmouth 40 years agp when he must have been about 80 years old. One of the last old proper sailors. He had skin burned mahogany colour by the sun and more wrinkles than your grandma.

    This is remarkable. Thanks for sharing it. Did you record this from him direct? And is that a Suffolk or Norfolk accent?
