Subject: RE: Lyr Req: WWII Song:'Come bury me out in Benghazi'
A version of this song was used in the production of 'Hands up for you the war is ended' which was performed at the Victoria Theatre in Stoke on Trent back in (I think) 1970. This was a brilliant musical documentary; the memory of it has stayed with me to this day. The actual words used were, if I remember rightly, printed in the programme, a copy of which is held by the Imperial War Museum. You might be able to find other copies of the programme by searching Google.
