FC: Soldier Boy | Private James Martin 21st Battalion
1: Set in Australia during World War 1, this is the story of a young boy who wanted to be in the middle of the action. It is also the story of the boy's family, who had to let their son go. There's a Flag proudly floats o'er the ocean, 'Tis the flag of the Southern Cross so free; It fills all our hearts with emotion, We've followed it across the might sea. We'll plant it on the battlefields of Europe, And on our trenches it will be flying first, By the blood of our boys we will uphold it - Here's luck to the old Twenty-first. - The Battalion Song
