was just before dawn One,
miserable morning in black '44 When
the forward commander Was
told to sit tight When
he asked that his men be withdrawn And.
the generals gave thanks As
the other ranks Held
back the enemy tanks For
a while And.
the Anzio bridgehead was held for the price Of
a few hundred ordinary lives And.
kind old King George sent Mother a note When
he heard that Father was gone It.
was I, recall in, the form of a scroll With,
gold leaf and all And.
I found it one day In,
a drawer of old photographs hidden away And.
my eyes still grow damp To
remember His Majesty signed With
his own rubber stamp It.
was dark all around There,
was frost in the ground When
The Tigers Broke Free And.
no one survived From
the Royal Fusiliers Company,
were all left behind Most,
of them dead The,
rest of them dying And.
that's how the High Command Took
my Daddy From
