Picture the blood stained battlefield

They are using young women as human shields

Driving them on in front you see

To hide them from the enemy.

"Stop , do not fire," was our officers cry:

Thats the reason our lads were defeated that

                                                     day.

                             No 9961 Cpl J. Palin

                                  2/nd Batt Ches-Regt
