                        Lead Swinging

                             ________

There was a little man

and he fell down in his knee

and they sent him to Boulogne

To No 5 B.R.C.

And the M.O. there did knife him

and the sisters there did say

Put more soda in it next time

and you will not fall that way

              ______

They are pouring in bright green stuff

Which makes his knee so gay

and although the colours' pretty

He may be fit some day

                   _________

Then he hopes to go to Blighty

and when he's out of bed

To give lectures to the headswingers

On "How to swing  the head"

               __       

                     J  ...  Harrison

                   26th Br A.I.F.
