    I attend the United States Merchant Marine Acdemy, thank you for such an inspirational video! My section marches to this every day and I will definitely listen to this during Sea Year.

    My grandfather (b. Wicklow 1899 d.Liverpool 1947) and his son (b.Liverppol 1926 d.Runcorn 2002) both risked their lives against the U-boat blockade in WW1 & WW2 respectively. It seems to me that the efforts of the Merchant Marine have never been properly recognised, and this applies even more so to the Canadians. So a big thanks to the sailors, especially the Canucks! Good song too!

    great stuff, I like it very much. As a U-Boot- Kaleun on SH3, I feel almost proud for beeing so called a "Bastard Wolfpack"
    unfortunately I'm living in Laos PDR and there is no way to find this DVD

    Best regards from

    Outstanding! Very well put together. This yankee has long been a fan of celtic music, as well as a capella.

    Well written, well played and well filmed!
