War - Ww1 - The Bath
An ordinary Australian from an ordinary country place
Who rallied to the flag's call with god's good grace
He was one of the 33rd Battalion "New England's Own"
Into this swirling maelstrom they were duly thrown
The Great War was raging and to the Western Front he went
A lottery of shell, bullet and gas was his unending lament.
In 1917 the Germans attacked with a fury not before wrought
The Australians held the line and were tested as they fought
