Certain people would not clean their buttons,
Nor polish buckles after latest fashion.
Preferred their hair long, putties comfortable,
Barely escaped hanging….
These were the ones who jested in the trench
While others argued of army ways and wrenched what little soul they had still further
In Artois or Picardy they lie, free of useless fashions.
Capt. Lord Deverel
3rd Danby Foresters
Rob’s been killed. There’s no question.
