Does anyone know this post war song? The chorus goes
The shores of old Blighty we're leaving behind,
The dim lights of Harwich are fading away.
When we get to Germany how will we find,
Life on a seviceman's pay, sergeant ?
Life on a seviceman's pay.

The song - written by Graeme Miles - is called THE SHORES OF OLD BLIGHTY and was written about the experiences Graeme had doing his National Service in Germany in the 1950's

Thanks Jon. I wasn't a member then but I should have searched harder.
Thanks Nutty for the background. Very best wishes,
Keith.
