I will always remember, how short a time from facing the Turks to facing the Japanese. This is partly preserved in my 1928 Lithgow Enfield.
Never heard this before. Well aware of Galipallie and the young brave men. Very nice song. Very sad, but I have yet to see war's aftermath not paved with sorrow of the many.
Nice vocal, but bogle's is more heart wrenching

Man, this song hurts.
Pandora does not credit the writer. Eric Bogle from Australia. The Green Fields from France is even better! Great tune!

Stunning, both lyrics and the singer's voice. I thought at first I was hearing Joan Baez.
