To their own shore came the world war
Gleaves and Ingham
Leading the bury west


Took the short way in
The long route back convoy 92
Bury Gleaves and Ingham leading
Tankers to the west

And upon the north Atlantic
Lies the silence of the seas
On a quiet night in the darkest hour
The kriegsmarine appear


Above the surface it seems quiet and calm
Deep down below the wolfpack lurks

To their own shore came the world war
Gleaves and Ingham
Leading the bury west
In their own track came the wolfpack
Gleaves led the conwoy
Into the hornets nest

At the crack of dawn the second day
Bury stands in flames
Half the convoy sunk or disabled
Heading back to shore
But below the north Atlantic
On the bottom of the sea
On the second night in the darkest hour
The kriegsmarine return

The wolfpack surface for a second time
To make the convoy face it's fate

To their own shore came the world war
Gleaves and the Ingham
Leading the bury west
In their own track came the wolfpack
Gleaves led the convoy
Into the hornets nest

Under fire under water
May 42 when
Bury did fail the test
To their own shore came the world war
Gleaves and the Ingham
Leading them into death

569 makes the contact and lead them
U-94 scores a kill in the dark
124 sinking 4 in 2 approaches
406 suffers failure on launch

    This song is a story about operation called "Convoy 92" (ONS-92). German wolfpack, Hecht (6 boats), was sent to destroy allied convoy close to unprotected coasts of America. Last part of the song tells about the fight.

    "Under fire under water
    May 42 when
    Bury did fail the test
    To their own shore came the world war
    Gleaves and the Ingham
    Leading them into death"

    This part describes the event the best. May 1942, allied ship Bury failed to use HF/DF (High Frequency Direction Finder) which was used to locate enemy submarines. Gleaves and Ingham were leading the convoy into the wolfpack because not knowing the wolfpack was there.
