Dennis the Elder Lyr Req: Anzac Day? / We Would Remember Them (17) RE: Anzac Day lyrics please? 25 Apr 14


Mr Bogle was accused of being anti ANZAC after this song was first released. He did inform me that this was far from the truth and that he was anti war not anti ANZAC.
There is no doubt he was sincere when he said this.
I too will be singing this song at Wath Folk Club on Sunday when we are featuring songs associated with ANZAC Day and the Gallipoli landings, my grandfather was in the area of the Dardanelles around this time. When I asked my grandfather what it was like all he would say is"you do not want to know".
The Cecily Fox Smith poem above is excellent and if time permits I will try to get hold of the tune and sing this also.
ANZAC Day is certainly worth remembering 99 years since the Gallipoli Landings. We still have a lot to learn.
