Thread Name: Lyr Req: Many Young Men of Twenty
Subject: RE: why Many Young Men of Twenty?
If the truth were known, the young men who flocked to join the British army in either world war, whether Irish, Scottish or dissenter, weren't motivated by altruistic notions. It was the prospect of 3 squares and a new pair of boots.
