    Hiya Mike as a 16 year old pantry boy and A/S in the 1950's I remember the scene very well. On the Kiwi coast we used go down and clean 'em out ready for the return voyage .

    There passes to and fro
    Where the Ghostly Iceberg Travels
    Or the spicy trade winds blow
    A gaudy piece of bunting,a royal ruddy rag
    The blossom of the Ocean Lanes
