They went to fight for our country,
Australia was in need.
Strong men and women required,
to obey the call and lead.
The battlefield was loud,
the tanks and gunfire boomed.
The soldiers fought with all they had,
while others their fate was doomed.
The war was unavoidable,
it was our country’s fate.
The soldiers fought to the bitter end,
for their country and their mate.
There was no giving up,
they fought till their last breath.
Some made it safe back home again,
while others met their death.
