The Family Tree of the Gateshead Brattons


One of the famous Brattons was US born John Walter Bratton who wrote the music for Teddy Bears' Picnic. Among the 250 songs he wrote, are these words, which are worth quoting since the Brattons are on both sides of the pond (and the antipodes)

There's a bridge of friendship stretching over the sea
Like a rainbow from shore to shore
There are Yankees by the dozens reaching out to British cousins
While bravehearts meet, their lips repeat
Let's get together, everybody sing:
"I wish I was in Dixie" and "God save the King"
Let's get together, put an end to grief
Sing "Yankee Doodle came to town" and then "The Mapleleaf"
Our flags entwined will remind mankind wherever they may be
That while the eagle soars and the British lion roars
We will march to victory
