Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Wonder if any made it to 1919?
In amongst all the horror stories about families losing fathers, brothers and sons I realise how lucky my great grandparents were. They had ten children, of whom I know one was a piper and stretcherbearer in the Royal Scots, one was in the Royal Scots Greys and my grandad was on a destroyer at the Battle of Jutland: everyone came home.
Those forgotten heroes from a forgotten war And their ghosts can be heard as they march by the billibongWho'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me? AMEN!
Great song, got it on my phone.
Both my Grandfathers were in the Drop-Shorts in WW1. Paternal in Australian and Maternal in British. Both came back, but not the full quid.
