Unless You've Been a Soldier
By Clive Sanders

Unless you've been a soldier,
You just won't understand.
The things that we have seen and done,
In the service of our land.
We have trained to live in combat,
To cope with awful sights,
That shouldn't be seen by anyone
And keep you awake at nights.

We don't discuss the wounds we have,
To the body or the mind.
We just put our hurts behind us,
And turn our memories to blind.
We are proud we served our country,
And remember those we lost.
For the freedom that you have today,
They paid the awful cost.
This section of the website, specifically:
Lest we Forget and Veterans Biographies pages have been compiled and edited by Comrade Harold Brown and posted by Comrade Gary Badcock.
They are Dedicated In Honour and Remembrance of Veterans of the area.
