They joined for many reasons, to march to sail or fly..
Went where they were posted, none had joined to die..
The Government spoke on radio, what else they could have done..
Some would lose a daughter, so many would lose a son..
So, here's to all those heroes, wherever they may be..
God protect your families; and I raise a glass to thee..
I wear my Poppy with so much pride, you did it for us all..
You did it for our country, far too many of you would fall.
This special day we remember, let's keep their deeds alive..
They gave so much for us all, so wear your poppy with pride..
