Thread Name: Lyr Req: Over the Hills and Far Away
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Over the Hills and Far Away
The Isle of Wight Rifles used "Over the Hills and Far Away", with appropriate lyrics, as their marching song but the lyrics have been lost and the regiment was "absorbed" into the Hampshire and IW Rifles following disastrous losses at Suvla Bay and Gaza 100 years ago.
Folk here keeps their memory alive and if anyone can help to restore this missing link - heartfelt thanks
