||I wrote this tune on Remembrance Day. I have been mortared and shot at and
know the fear amd excitement of it but I am here to tell the tale. During the last big
European war many local men were killed. Why? Who started it? What good did it do? Hmm.
But at least in this country, at the present time, it could be said of us, as of the boys
who were killed in the war, that we have finished fighting.
