Thread Name: Who's Eric Bogle?
Subject: RE: Who´s Eric Bogle?
Eric was reared in Peebles-shire---I think in the little township of Broughton.[His "Belle o' Broughton" refers to his mother, who is also, I believe, the subject of his "Farewell Nancy".] A wonderful "versifier", for me his best is "No-man's Land"--often misnamed "the Green Fields of France".
