And Still Contd


Unable to raise a smile.

Right + left for tins + lemons they flew!

Ending by resting a while

Down in that sweet scented ward we Waacs lay.

Smiling, e'en when things went wrong

Intent as ever on fun the next day

Cares forgotten we landed with a song

 Kissing  our hands to dear Old England

Wondering when we'd return there again

And now our feet are on the new land

Away we now fly, forgotten all pain

Crying We're here to stand for England

Show us how we can help our dear Land

D. A. Coller

Bourges

1918


 Wavy line added by writer under the poem 


-ured-Sick-Waacs.  "ured" follows on from "c" on the previous page to make the word "cured"
