Ye Mar’ners All

Mrs Marina Russell (then aged 76) of Upwey, Dorset sang this song to Henry Hammond in 1907 but didn’t remember all the words, so he used those supplied by W Haines of ‘Halfway House, between Sherborne and Yeovil’. The photo shows the Old Ship at Upwey in 1910, when Mrs Russell lived in the village.
