Subject: Suvla Bay
My father recalls the following verse from a song his mother used to sing. I've drawn a blank searching...any ideas?

Away in an Australian homestead with roses round the door
Stood a girl with a letter in her hand that had just come from the war
He did his bit that day - and lost his life at Suvla Bay
