The Dockyard Mateys’ children
Sitting on the Dockyard wall -

Doing f--- all.

The Dockyard Mateys’ children
Will be Dockyard Mateys too - [some hope these days]
Just like their faaathers -
f--- all to do.

There. That should annoy someone.
The last time I was in Devonport was in '57 - '58 refitting the Barrage. The wall hadn't been built then. The whole area had been bombed during the war and consisted of wired off compounds. The main street 'Fore Street' was there leading I believe to South Yard Gate. There was a branch of Woolworths next to the bank and a pub which I think was called the Barnstaple
