The Men They Couldn't Hang did a good version of it PFR, this might be more up your street? Men They Couldn't Hang

And Keith, When you consider the numbers who signed up under age, the huge jingoistic enlistment campaigns, peer pressure (white feathers etc etc) and the fact that some of the politics behind it all are still not clear to this day, I still think the question posed in the song as to what those boy soldiers believed is a very valid one.

My Grandfather lost his sight in a gas attack and was sent home, I never met him as he had died before I was born, but I'm told he considered himself one of the lucky ones, as he came home, and when asked why he went, all he would say is it was his duty and he had to.
