Sir Henry Newbolt, Bilston
Followers 1

Named after the poet born in Bilston, in 1862, and best remembered for his patriotic ballads. Sir Henry Newbolt is remembered chiefly for his patriotic and nautical ballads, such as Drakes’ Drum (1897). Perhaps his best-known lines are from The Island Race: ‘There’s a breathless hush in the close tonight/Ten to make and the match to win. But his Captain’s hand on his shoulder smote/Play up! play up! and play the game!’
