Sullivan, 'Snowy' (Merchant Seaman)
British Merchant Seaman Tim McCoy and Australian Merchant Seaman 'Snowy' Sullivan became friends in Milag Nord Merchant Navy prisoner of war (POW) camp, Germany during the Second World War. Sullivan served on the ship Port Brisbane. The two tapes contain the history of their meeting. Tape number two was recorded in 1995, at Radio City Gold in Liverpool, England. It contains an interview conducted by Debbie Jones with Tim, aged 74. Tim sings a verse of 'Until the dawn my love', a ballad composed by Snowy Sullivan at Milag Nord, POW Camp, Germany. McCoy has dedicated the song to all former POW at Milag Nord and their wives. A local (Liverpool) musician, Freddy Lloyd, wrote and performs the electronic keyboard backing in tape number two. Also included in the collection is the story of the inspiration for the ballad, 'Until the dawn my love' written by Tim McCoy for the 48th anniversary of the liberation of Milag Nord by the Guards Armoured Division, 24 April 1993.
