More lines that have a special meaning for me and, I suspect, to many veterans:

...And when the ship pulled into Circular Quay
I looked at the place where my legs used to be
And thanked Christ there was no one there waiting for me
To grieve, and to mourn, and to pity.

And the band played Waltzing Matilda
As they carried us down the gangway
But nobody cheered
They just stood there and stared
Then they turned all their faces away.
