The Boy From the Lower Deck

Hank Koopman, an ex-sailor and a member of the Devonport / Ulverstone Sub Section, performs his moving rendition of The Boy from the Lower Deck in this video as his contribution to the memory of Ordinary Seaman Teddy Sheean VC, the 1st VC awarded to the RAN.

In this video Hank adapts the words from The Boy from the Lower Deck, of George A Lee’s poem, to his own musical score to produce this fitting tribute.  Unfortunately due to ill health Hankis unable to perform his music anymore and this appearance could possibly be his last his last major performance.

Bravo Zulu Hank
