DEDICATION                            n
We're going to have a fight
In the middle of the night
With the whizz-bangs a-flying in the air."
Though we cannot picture a peace which will be in no way associated with high explosives, we can dream in the midst of the conflict of the desirable things that civil life would bring us.
What time we waited for Kitchener's Army in Flanders and lost all hope of ever seeing it, this song was sung up and down the trenches by the Territorials and Regulars.
" Who are the boys that fighting's for, Who are the lads to win the war, It's good old Kitchener's Army. And every man of them's tres bon, They never lost a trench since Mons, Because they never saw one."
