The title of this blog includes reference to the 1982 single ‘Shipbuilding’ that was released by singer Robert Wyatt who’d been a founding member of Soft Machine. Shipbuilding was written by, arguably, England’s greatest lyricist, Elvis Costello and concerned the Falklands War between the UK and Argentina in which, respectively, 904 and 2,412 largely military personnel were killed and injured.
