not our pick   our pick   
Description: This is from my album 'Chums' which follows 3 best friends as they optimistically join up in the early stages of the First World War. This optimism is, of course, quickly dropped as the reality becomes apparent. This song is about the night before a major offensive and Charlie imagining his German counterpart in the opposing trench.
