Soldiers of the King.

We’re Soldiers of the king my lads
And we answered the Nations Call
To fight the Country’s Oppressors
All for one and one for all
For we worked as a team against overpowering odds
In our efforts to beat the Foe
To liberate other friendly Allies
And the result we may never know
We fought the fight the best we knew how
In conditions which were bad at the time
Living in trenches no shelter from the weather
The smell of Gas Cordite and the mud and slime
The battles were horrific on the body and the mind
With little time to ever sleep or rest
Ever conscious of the threat of yet another onslaught
We just had to fight and do our level best
But sadly the casualties were many
Where many thousands of young lives were lost
There were others with injuries in their minds and in their souls
Which they carried with them for Life, a part of War’s Human Cost
So arm in arm the injured wandered step by step along the way
Some Sacrificing their tomorrow to let others enjoy their today
