Just another day.
How quiet it is under the trees
All cambed up enjoying the breeze
The dappled sunshine in forest glade
As we sit picking the grass sucking a blade.
Thinking of family friends far away
As at peace we while the hours away
The earphones hanging give the news
Followed by music singing the blues
A shout decam pack up mount ready to move
Pack it all back on board with one last shove
Then sitting and waiting always a bore
Before start up move out with a mighty roar.
And back home people got on with normal life, did they ever give the forces a thought, at that time no, we blocked the roads with convoys damaged property with our machines just a nuisance but, large but, there comes a time when they are needed, bring out the flags.
