For all who served or trained at HMS St Vincent
Thank you very much for your comments. Yes I like Pirates and Pinafore but my favourite is “Ruddigore.” Especially the second act when the ancestors come back to life and sing the following
“Baronet of Ruddigore, down upon that oaken floor.” and then accuse him of about 12 different things beginning
“Coward, Pouton,Blaggard,.”and so on
Little did I realise that when at St Vincent learning to pipe the side I would be doing the same thing in Pinafore.
Love G & S for their Mickey taking of Victorian society. They have their own playlist on my devices. My two favourites are Pirates and Pinfore.
