Many Merchant Big Steamers were used to bring our food to Britain during the two world wars. Many lives were lost and we must always remember all the people who lost their lives.

1914-18
RUDYARD KIPLING

"Oh, where are you going to, all you Big Steamers,
With England's own coal, up and down the salt seas ?"
"We are going to fetch you your bread and your butter,
Your beef, pork, and mutton, eggs, apples, and cheese."

"And where will you fetch it from, all you Big Steamers,
And where shall I write you when you are away ? "
"We fetch it from Melbourne, Quebec, and Vancouver -
Address us at Hobart, Hong-Kong, and Bombay."

British Merchant and Fishing Vessel

"But if anything happened to all you Big Steamers,
And suppose you were wrecked up and down the salt sea ?"
"Then you'd have no coffee or or bacon for breakfast,
And you'd have no muffins or toast for your tea."

"Then I'll pray for fine weather for all you Big Steamers,
For little blue billows and breezes so soft."
"Oh billows and breezes don't bother Big Steamers,
For we're iron below and steel-rigging aloft."

"Then I'll build a new lighthouse for all you Big Steamers
With plenty wise pilots to pilot you through."
"Oh the Channel's as bright as a ball-room already,
And pilots are thicker than pilchards at Looe."

"Then what can I do for you, all you Big Steamers,
Oh what can I do for your comfort and good ?"
"Send out your big warships to watch your big waters,
That no one may stop us from bringing you food.

So many Big Steamers were sunk during the
1st World War and may of the sailors were drowned.

"For the bread that you eat and the biscuits you nibble,
The sweets that you suck and the joints
that you carve,
They are brought to you daily by all us Big Steamers -
And if anyone hinders our coming you'll starve ! "
