Description

A tribute to the men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces of yesterday and today. These ten songs describe different aspects of military life through the ages.

Songs include: Banks of Sicily – A Scottish regiment waits its turn to board the troop ships that will take them home from the beaches of Sicily, following the battles of July and August, 1943; The Last Farewell – This soldier’s war is over and he is heading home to England; Bonnie Dundee – A Scottish Lord rallies his men to fight in an upcoming battle; Heaven Help the Devil – A contemporary tribute to those who risk their lives in peacetime for a conflict we all hope will never come; And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda – Australia’s baptism by fire in the Dardanelles campaign of 1915; Fare Thee Well Enniskillen – A rousing Irish song about sailing off to fight in Spain, with hopes of returning home hale and hearty; A Scottish Soldier – A Scottish ballad of one soldier’s dream of spending his last days on his own green fields of home; Arthur McBride – A tale of a couple of reluctant recruits being press-ganged into the British Army; The Peat Bog Soldiers – A requiem from the prisoner of war camps of the Spanish Civil War; No Man’s Land – Perhaps one of the most poignant songs about the human cost of war — this is the story of young Private Willie McBride who died in France in 1915 at the age of 19.
