Covid Island Discs
Day 36 (Australian Anzac Day): The Band Played Waltzing Matilda, The Pogues
Today is Australia’s Remembrance Day (the equivalent of our 11th of November) for the many brave Australians lost in war. This song tells the tragic story of an Australian Anzac who lost both legs in Gallipoli and considers the pointlessness of human warfare. Lest we forget.
