here's oneEric Bogle- And the Band PLayed Waltzing Matilda
A song made famous by the Pogues, written by Eric Bogle. Eric Bogle also wrote the Green Fields of France "No Mans Land".
And just because you don't often get a chance to mention Siegfried Sassoon and Shane McGowan in the same breath very often here's a war poem...Suicide in the Trenches
I knew a simple soldier boy
Who grinned at life in empty joy,
Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
And whistled early with the lark.
In winter trenches, cowed and glum
With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
He put a bullet through his brain.
No one spoke of him again.
You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
Sneak home and pray you'll never know
The hell where youth and laughter go.
