THE SOLDIer info
This song is a tribute to the ANZACs, and to all soldiers. 10 million military personnel died in World War 1, think of how many family members, lovers and friends were affected by that loss, the reverberations would be felt for many years to come. We are all part of a chain, links to the past.
I have never been to war, I can only try to imagine what was going through the minds of those fellas all those years ago. A lot of them signed up for an adventure but got a hell of a lot more than that.
