Our boys who charged, as English can

Across the sun scorched lands

These faces set right bang in front

And rifle in there hand,

Our boys who saw the sun go down,

And watched the queen of night

Shed glorious o'er the glistning guns

Her still and peaceful night

                    With Best wishs,

                         Tapper Gillison
