Sailor is a 1961 Hit song by Petula Clark. My friend Ann introduced me to this song in 2008. Thanks Ann, I just love it. As an ex Royal Australian Navy sailor - I have memories of sailing away from loved ones. The black and white photos in this Music Video were taken by various members of the Royal Australian Navy Photographic Branch (including myself). I served in the R.A.N. Photographic Branch from 1961 to 1972.
