    Does anyone have access to the words (and, less importantly, the tune) of the above ballad, which concerns the courts-martial which followed the Iron Duke/Vanguard collision of 1875, please?

    There is a recent book about the whole saga which may lead to the answer that you need.
    Lamentable Intelligence from the Admiralty: The Sinking of the HMS Vanguard in 1875

    There are various versions of this ballad – two appear in Mariner’s Mirror Vol 21 Number 2 (1935) Pages 211-12.
