Ostensibly about WW1 it is also about the debt we owe that we can only repay by NEVER forgetting what hardships they endured to enable us to live the lives we do!!.........do yourselves a favour and have a listen....
Happy and safe New Year everyone!
" When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble, give a whistle "
The band played waltzing Matilda , a terrific song that has quite a bit of meaning to those of us old enough to remember seeing the old first war blokes, as a kid they were easy to spot, they were the old fellas missing arms and legs.
Lilly Marlene, a beautiful song.
Redgums, I was only nineteen, another terrific song, like many Aussie war songs it doesn't speak of glory etc...but of pain, suffering and futility. I like them.
Has to be Men of Harlech.
