The song written by Paul McCartney about a Beatles alter-ego band. Many people thought that McCartney’s OPP badge on the sleeve of his costume on the inside cover meant Officially Pronounced Dead. However, it was a gift given to him by an Ontario Provincial Police Officer Glenn Hickingbottom on the tarmac of Toronto’s Malton Airport in September, 1964. Hickingbottom rose to the rank of Chief Superintendent of the OPP and died in 1994.

2.   TV Theme Song: Sergeant Preston of the Yukon 1955

Richard Simmons (d. January 11, 2003 aged 89) starred as the lone Mountie in the Yukon Territory during the Klondike gold rush of 1898. It also starred his dog, Yukon King and his horse, Rex. The series ran from 1955-58 and was actually produced in Colorado. It was originally a radio program called Challenge of the Yukon that began on Detroit's station WXYZ in 1938. The program was actually based on the exploits of a real-life Northwest Mounted Police officer named Sam Steele (5 January 1848 – 30 January 1919) who was the only Canadian law enforcement officer during the gold rush and saved numerous lives. He rose to the level of Major-General.

This band got together in 1975 and, without any personnel changes, remained in tact until Tom Rowe died in 1994. Since then the Romanoff brothers have played as a duo.  Day of the Clipper, their first album, was originally released in 1979.

A recruiting sergeant is a British or American soldier of the rank of sergeant who is tasked to enlist recruits. The term originated in the British army of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. A recruit would be given the King's shilling as a mark of the contract made. One of the tricks of the trade was to put a shilling into a mug of ale, and if a lad accepted it and found the shilling, a contract was made. This partially explains why there is glass at the bottom of many pewter mugs. The legend is that the glass bottomed tankard was developed as a way of refusing the King's shilling, i.e. conscription into the British army or navy. The drinker could see the coin in the bottom of the glass and refuse the drink, thereby avoiding conscription.

4.   Phil Silvers TV Theme Song: Sgt Bilko (John Strauss) 1955

Robert William Lane in Nelson, New Zealand, also credited as Robert Tex Morton 30 August 1916. Morton died in Sydney's Royal North Shore Hospital on 23 July 1983, after a short battle with lung cancer. He was like Canada’s Wilf Carter: a real pioneering cowboy recording artist.

WPA covered Tex Morton’s 1930 song Sergeant Small about the Queensland Railway Police. Morton’s version of it was banned soon after its release in Australia. Sergeant Small was a well-known police officer stationed at Roma in south-west Queensland. In the depression years, many men on the dole were obliged to travel the country searching for work. With virtually no money, many ‘swagmen’ would jump on a freight train. Sergeant Small developed a cunning approach. He would kit himself out as a bagman trying to find some space on a goods train for himself and he'd surreptitiously approach each carriage and ask if there was any room inside and many a concealed bagman would answer back and thus give himself up.

In 1938, the very talented New Zealand country and western singer then in Australia, Tex Morton, decided to write a song about Sergeant Small and it got a lot of airplay. Unfortunately, Sergeant Small took exception to this and his threats to sue resulted in the song being withdrawn from both broadcast and sale.

Major General James Wolfe (2 January 1727 – 13 September 1759)
The story of General Wolfe’s final battle on the Plains of Abraham in the battle for Quebec. A brigade major at the age of eighteen, he was a lieutenant-colonel by the age of twenty-three. Following the success of the Siege of Louisbourg he was made commander of a force which sailed up the Saint Lawrence River to capture Quebec City. After a long siege Wolfe defeated a French force under Louis-Joseph de Montcalm allowing British forces to capture the city. Wolfe was killed at the height of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham due to injuries from three musket balls.

The song is also know as Brave Wolfe. The first and one of the finest of the native Anglo-Canadian ballads, 'Brave Wolfe' describes the British victory on the Plains of Abraham in 1759. Composed soon after the battle, it seems to have been patterned on an old British love lament called 'The Blacksmith'. It circulated widely throughout the British colonies, appearing in many New England broadsides and songbooks of the 18th and 19th centuries, and survived in oral tradition in both Newfoundland and Nova Scotia well into the 20th century. But not to anyone’s surprise, not in Quebec.

Declan Patrick MacManus (born London UK, 25 August 1954)

the Oliver in question is Oliver Lyttelton, Churchill's President of the Board of Trade in the early stages of the Second World War. The Protected Occupations Act meant that any man not compelled to join the forces due to critically required trade skills was dubbed to be part of "Oliver's Army"

Said Costello: “The song was based on the premise 'they always get a working class boy to do the killing'. I don't know who said that; maybe it was me, but it seems to be true nonetheless. I pretty much had the song sketched out on the plane back to London."

This is the only PF song to feature Nick Mason on lead vocals.
The song is about a shell-shocked soldier who lost his leg in World War II. It is the first mention of war in a Pink Floyd song, something that would become a common theme in Roger Waters' lyrics, Roger having lost his father thus in 1944. Waters later claimed that the song was actually about his father.

Jarrow, in County Durham, was once the scene of major shipbuilding and steel works. After the depression, most of the town’s workers were unemployed, and despite promises by the national government to fix things, nothing transpired.

David Riley was the chairman of Jarrow Borough Council in northern England, and told a rally of the town's unemployed in July 1936: "If I had my way I would organise the unemployed of the whole country ... and march them on London so they would all arrive at the same time. The government would then be forced to listen, or turn the military on us". Thus, Marshal Riley’s Army.
Simon Cowe: d. September 30, 2015 Toronto, moved to Toronto in 1994 to run The Lakeside Brewing Coand brewed beers for my local, The Feathers pub

Actually 2 songs: "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey", hit No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 on 4 September 1971, the first post-Beatles song to do so. McCartney said, "As for Admiral Halsey, he's one of yours, an American admiral", referring to Fleet Admiral William "Bull" Halsey (1882–1959). Admiral Halsey was an authoritarian figure who ought to be ignored. But the song won Paul a Grammy Award nonetheless.

Gregory Stuart Lake (10 November 1947 Poole, Dorset UK – 7 December 2016 London)

discovered rock and roll in 1957 when he bought Little Richard's "Lucille". Started taking guitar lessions when he was 12 with the same man who taught Robert Fripp. After performing with several local groups he was approached by Fripp, who was then trying to put a band together, to be load vocalist and bass player.

Fripp had been playing with the Giles brothers, Peter and Michael, as Giles, Giles and Fripp. After moving to London, they recorded an album but never actually played a live gig in the year they stayed there. Eventually Peter Giles, the bass player, decided to quit the band so instead of recruiting two new members, Fripp asked Lake to do both jobs. The result was King Crimson. During the preperations for recording In The Court of the Crimson King, their producer Tony Clarke walked away, leaving the production work in the hands of the band. Lake actually did most of it and should be recognized as the real producer. (The production (and royalty to go with it) is held by King Crimson).

After touring the US with warmup band The Nice, Lake and Keith Emmerson decided to form their own group with Carl Palmer. He laid down the vocals for Crimson’s second album, In The Wake of Poseidon but the bass playing was played by Peter Giles. After this Lake joined ELP.

He was a Lucky Man! ELP needed just one more song to round out their first album so Lake suggested Lucky Man, a song he had written when he was 12 years old. The origin of the song, as stated by Greg Lake in interviews, is that it was the first song he wrote, when his mother bought him a guitar at the age of 12. With the first chords he learned (D, A minor, E minor, and G), he wrote an acoustic version of the song. It went on to be his legacy song, one of the first rock songs to feature a moog synthesizer solo. On it Lake plays acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, vocals. His autobiography, aptly entitled Lucky Man, will be published next September.

LONG LOST RELATIVES is a record that almost didn't happen. While laying down tracks at Magic Track Recording Studios, an accidental fire destroyed much of the studio and all the equipment inside. Undeterred, the band carried on when a group of loyal fans and fellow musicians decided to hold a benefit show for them, cramming over 2,000 people into a the St Lawrence Market hall. Now that's Toronto!
