you're making unwarranted assumptions about the lack of diversity in my musical taste and knowledge

No - I'm making assumptions based on your BALDERDASH post.

Is the 'Banks of Sicily' referred to the Hamish Henderson song? It's great but in my opinion of a very different sentiment (as in genre rather than sentmental)

My point exactly, BOS doesn't preach, just paints a wee vignette of wartime experience - by one who actually experienced it. There's no message here, or heavy handed moral bullying. I didn't sing it tonight anyway - I didn't feel I could get through it without choking, so I went for The Long Peggin' Awl instead.
