    To be sung to the tune of English Country Garden
    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUyxCP5Rvco)

    How many kinds of swift warbirds fly
    In the Battle for Tunisia?
    We’ll name them all or give it a try
    And you’ll pardon my amnesia
    Spitfires, Warhawks, 109s,
    Heinkels, Havocs, Hurrakynes,
    Macchis, Mustangs, and Dewointines,
    Junkers, Fieslers, Lightings, and sleek Würgerin,
    In the Battle for Tunisia.

    What sorts of things loudly rumble by
    In the Battle for Tunisia?
    We’ll name them all or give it a try
    And you’ll pardon my amnesia
    Panzer IIIs, Grants, Greifs, and Jeeps
    88s firing at the Lees
    Sherman tanks roll in the burning sand
    Valentines, Tiger treads
    And other things to dread
    In the Battle for Tunisia

    How many folk are seen low and high
    In the Battle for Tunisia?
    We’ll name them all or give it a try
    And you’ll pardon my amnesia
    Handsome Brits who give ‘em ‘ell
    New-come Yanks and old Rommel
    Free French, Arabs, here a random camel
    There are sailors at sea
    And warriors where ’er you be
    In the Battle for Tunisia

    Very nice, David. It’s a fitting memorial.

    Very good. I like that you put it into the real terms. War shouldn’t be a celebration of cool s h i t.

    ’88s firing at the Lees’ , ‘here a random camel’ – technically brilliant and as tom says, hits the correct emotional tone.

    Bravissimo.

    Very nice David, I suggest you sing it in and post on Youtube on the imodeler channel! Will go viral for sure! 🙂

    Oh, baby, I’d PAY to see that! And I’d put good money on david having an excellent tenor or baritone.

  • David A. Thomas said 1 month, 1 week ago:

    Now, friends, that just ain’t a-gonna happen. But I appreciate the vote of confidence!

  • David leigh-smith said 1 month, 1 week ago:

    Ah, we tried!

  • Michel Verschuere said 1 month, 1 week ago:
