“We’ll give you a tin-hat, we’ll give you a gun.

You’ll look great in khaki, you’ll have lots of fun.

Kiss all the family, goodbye to your son.

You’ll be home for Christmas, when this job is done.”

And the band played “Walzing Matilda”.  Over here it was soon over for them.  Can the rest of us rest in peace ?  Lest we forget.  And not just on April 25.
