If we can get a documentary maker to add the visuals for this most horrible of all wars to this emotion carrying voice and evocative poem and make them both part of our school history lessons perhaps just perhaps we could help finally make that war the war to end all wars. How beautiful the singer's voice how important the message it brings.

The Band Played Waltzing Matilda
Best anti war song I have ever heard. Should make anyone twice before unleashing it.
