Holey Moley Andybob! That is one serious tearjerker! Need a Kleenex…

Wow. That should be required viewing for everyone. Everywhere. It would help keep us properly grounded. And - of course - a great reminder of Australia’s under appreciated sacrifice in so many conflicts.

I’m gonna have to move back to the clown, if for no other reason than a bit of comic relief! Still got a full day ahead of me, but I KNOW a Scotsman’s voice singing a song to the tune of Waltzing Matilda is going to be stuck in my head for the rest of the day…

Not waltzing Matilda but on a similar moving theme.

Cara Dillon covered a traditional Irish track called There were roses

It was featured on a Billy Connely documentary about the Northern Irish conflict and its truly beautiful. Worth a listen.
