Thread Name: ADD: Kilroy Was Here (Ewan MacColl)
Subject: RE: Kilroy Was Here-Ewan MacColl
I have a sleeve note on the song, probably written by Colin Irwin.
Kilroy is the invisible survivor, the anonymous hero who came to symbolise the toughness of the one who not only gets up after the battle and walks away but allows himself to let you know he has done so.
