'The Rose Grower' is about Hilda Murrell, who was a professional rose grower. Hilda Murrell was also an anti-nuclear campaigner who was murdered in March 1984. And she was the aunt of Robert Green, the former naval intelligence officer who was one of only a few people who know about the details of the sinking of the Argentinian ship the General Belgrano, during the 1982 Falklands conflict.
The song was released in 1988 on the album 'The Baby Within us Marches on' by Attacco Decente. It is one of the few songs banned from receiving airplay in the UK: The song tells the story of Hilda Murrell's murder. The song is also an expression of love, respect, admiration and solidarity. It is twenty eight years since Hilda Murrell's murder. However, on March 18th 2012 The Guardian newspaper reported that Michael Mansfiled QC has demanded a fresh police inquiry to establish what the British intelligence services knew about the murder: http://www.guardian.co.uk/law/2012/ma...
