GUEST,BobL Wrap Me Up In My Tarpaulin Jacket (53* d) RE: Wrap Me Up In My Tarpaulin Jacket 07 Jan 13

The first verse describes the subject as a "tall stalwart lancer", and
the later reference to "two little white tombstones" would seem to rule out burial at sea. Sounds like the old soldier to be buried coffinless in a tarpaulin shroud: was that ever normal practise?
