 ramblings and things


We are the Veterans Centre volunteers
Each one damaged in their own way
But we help each other's with problems
And we're there every single day.
We don't help heroes, a misused word
We help fellow veterans just to survive:
For some of our colleagues it's a
Victory to just still be alive.
The door is always open
A cup of NATO standard free
With the invitation to
Just drop in and see.
We can advise on most problems
Or if it's only for a chat
Well come on in colleague
We're all pretty good at that.
Sometimes it's like the NAAFI,
Or maybe the corporals' mess
Or maybe a yarning session
With odd sins to confess.
We scrape by on bucket collection
And we never turn a colleague away
And we're fighting and we're winning
 Brothers and sisters this Centre's here to stay,
