Thread Name: ADD: Kilroy Was Here (Ewan MacColl)
Subject: RE: Kilroy Was Here-Ewan MacColl
Sorry, I should have pointed out that I was aware of this symbol and its ubiquitous nature during the war. I assumed MacColl to be using "Kilroy" as a wartime image, and not as the actual topic which he was portraying. What is Kilroy representing in the broader context of the song?
