Question music

Hello forum,
I travelled from England to South America aboard the Arlanza in 1962. I was very young then, but have a vivid memory of the march played as the ship set sail from Tilbury on August 12 because it was my birthday. Where or how can I find what march used to be played on those occasions?
Thank you,
Elena

On the Amazon 1963 I recollect a medley of nautical tunes being played when departing with passengers. ‘Life on the ocean waves’ being one.

"Now is the hour when we must say goodby " was the sailing tune most heard in the 1950's
