Like most people who watched Peter Jackson’s digital version of the WW 1 war films I went to bed wondering why the hell any politician would send anybody ever to war. The film was horrendously graphic. Looking at the young men heading to their deaths and hearing the voices of their fellow soldiers recalling their experiences was sobering stuff. If you haven’t seen it then go to Television on demand and watch it.
I was just recovering when Patrick O’Connor sent me Eric Bogle singing the ultimate anti-war song “And the band sang waltzing Matilda”
