“Red Cap's Hole”


Ships caught in a gale are too far out to make Avondale or Harbour Main and ride out the weather in Red Cap's Hole. "When news got to their native homes" the "gallant band marched down by land To help the toilers home."


The only names I recognize here, Avondale and Harbour Main, are in Conception Bay. - BS
