Subject: RE: Meanings, Kipling army song
Keith it is plain to see that you are not ex service.Any thing that
happens to a comrade in arms has far more effect than the same thing happening to a stranger.I can still recall how I felt on hearing that
a casual acqaintance had been killed by terrorists in Aden.Hence the
Colour Sergeant and the 'Files on Parade'are definately affected by
the event in front of them.And drinking beer with a comrade does not make them good friends mate.Kipling was definately into the way the
Victorian Soldier thought and acted.
