The forgotten heroes of a forgotten war. And the young people ask me, “what are they marching for?” And I ask myself the same question, and the band plays Waltzing Matilda.
I got on the bandwagon a little late for Inktober, but I’m going to do as many of these music pieces as I can throughout the month. All songs that I am illustrating arouse patriotism within myself, and weren’t written by a slave-owning lawyer. This song may be about Austrailian World War 1 veterans on the Turkish front. As an American, I can still relate and feel patriotic when hearing the woe of a soldier and the loss of innocence.
