How to erase history!

Seasons of my life

Why Do We Stand?

I'll Always Be There!

I Feel Just Like a Baby!



That's Life!

War is Hell

Oh! Where did it all go?

Disrespect?

'OH! My,my,my!"

Warriors

Disrespect!

Beware!

Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Fifty Years Later

All in a DAY

A Warrior's Soul

Into the Valley of Death

Rally around lads…
speak not to me of retreat, surrender or defeat!
Sound the charge loud and clear for we shall
send the enemy to hell where the devil they
shall surely meet!

Forward lancers! Charge!
Straight ahead lads! To the pickets
we shall gallop! Flag-Bearer keep the
Union Jack flying steady, so the enemy
shall know we are bound and ready!

Through the smoke and cannon fire they bravely
charged, six hundred strong into the Valley of
Death.
Where they fiercely fought one on one and
English blood ran deep on that frozen battlefield
forlorn...for Queen and Country.
Forgotten not…for the echoes of bravery will
forever sound…forward Lancers…Charge!
