The War Illustrated No 26 Vol 2 March 1st 1940

WE‘ ARE THE“ EXETER ”STRAIGHT FROM THE WEST’ As H.M.S. "E xeter” steamed past the cheering crowds, her band of 50 Royal Marines played a selection of music beginning with the ship’s song, “We are the‘ ¦Exeter’ straight from the West.” In this case it had a double significance, for she was straight from the great naval victory in the Western ccean. Those who cheered her included Servicemen, dockyard hands, and many civilians, men, women and children, among them being relations of members of the crew, many of whom are Devon men.
