Track 3:

NOTES: Kipling added many expressions to the language but not, as sometimes thought, the soubriquet "Tommy Atkins" which dates back to the time of Waterloo. Kipling's soldiers' poems, however, make one feel he really SHOULD have been the inventor; none more so than his indictment of society's attitude to the private soldier: "...making mock of uniforms that guard you while you sleep..." Another robust assault: this time upon the accepted attitudes of society as a whole.
