ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is a unique collection of songs from the 1914-18 war and was recently used in the much acclaimed BBC programme 'I Was There', The Great War Interviews. Whilst evoking the wartime atmosphere experienced by those at home and in the trenches, these songs also exemplify the qualities of human fidelity and comradeship shared by the common soldier in the field. They justly thought, We're Here Because We're Here and sought to strengthen their loyalties through communal Song.

This Centenary Edition contains 6 extra tracks and honours the service and sacrifice made by the men and women of our armed and civilian services together with those of the Dominions (now the Commonwealth) and our allies.

This CD features original lyrics as used by soldiers of the Great War and contains strong Language.
