Thread Name: Songs about the Great War (WWI)
Subject: RE: Songs about the Great War
Actually, Walrus, I'm an Australian - However, 'Walrus' is generally an 'unusual' nickname and I know a member of the Vietnam Veterans Motorcycle Club with the same monicker - I think his stems from the moustache.
I spent 10 years or so as "Padre" to the club, so got to knbow them all quite well. A fair responsibility; especially considering that my 'commission' was for the entire club, Australia wide!
I too was too young, thank God - Australia pulled out just before I turned 18: However I tend to showcase VV's when I talk to kids in schools and often sing "I Was Only 19 (A Walk in the Light Green)"
Anyway - gotta go to "The Kirk" I'll finish this entry later
So - - - - - - - - Later!!
