Can't we remember without the hypocrisy of glorifying our martial present?
Here's a wee tune by a working-class guy from Peebles called Eric Bogle.
And I can't help but wonder oh Willy McBride
Do all those who lie here know why they died
Did you really believe them when they told you the cause
Did you really believe that this war would end wars
Well the suffering, the sorrow, the glory, the shame
The killing and dying it was all done in vain
Oh Willy McBride it all happened again
And again, and again, and again, and again
