Gallipoli-World War I

Bullets piercing through my brain,
After I said I was "right as rain".
Gallantly soldiers fought their war,
Bullets, guns and trenches galore,

In the dirty plains of Gallipoli.

Bodies dead, swarmed by flies,
So many men were doomed to die.
The lifeless bodies that hit the earth,
Few to witness a second birth,

Fell dead in the trenches of Gallipoli.

Choking on flies as we ate with disgust,
The water dirt and filled with dust.
Jim Martin lying on the Glenart Castle,
Anchored offshore as we fought our battle,

We stood as the 21st Battalion.
