Edith Giovanna Gassion.
[Edith Piaf]
b.Belleville, Paris.

Abandoned at a very early age,
certainly not to a gilded cage,
her maternal granny takes good care,
Edith still a baby, unaware.

Her fathers mother her next home,
a brothel his mother ran alone,
ladies of the night taking pity,
Edith tiny and rather pretty.

At just fourteen she left this abode,
joining her father on the road,
travelling and singing all over France,
eventually parting, she took her chance.

Place Pigalle she sings out loud,
always attracting an admiring crowd,
a nightclub owner heard her voice,
he rather liked her charm and poise,

He gave her work at his club 'Le Gerny',
thus encouraging this amazing journey,
The Little Sparrow rose to fame,
getting French, and the Worlds acclaim.

Dame Vera Lyne.DBO.OBE.
b.Vera Margaret Welsh.
20th March. 1917.

A London 'East Ham' girl by birth,
her father a plumber, down to earth,
seven years of age she began her career,
a workers club she heard her first cheer.

At eleven years just, a school drop out,
encouraged by a variety show talent scout,
touring Britain the whole year round,
her voice broke, becoming profound.

In '35 she went on the air,
unnerved, confident, showing flair,
with Joe Loss she toured for a while,
developing her-girl next door style,

Sincerely Yours her own radio show,
a huge success from the word go,
the emblematic war song, We'll Meet Again,
giving hope, with its inspiring refrain.

The forces favourite she was declared,
many charities she formed and chaired,
it wasn't just soldiers that won the war,
It was Vera Lynn and her inspiring tour.

Posts: 120 In 1956 British parachute troops
and French Foreign legion Paratroops
attacked Port Said in Egypt.
I took part in that attack.
Suez, that first day.

Bonfire night 1956

Eleven years after world war two,
airborne troops were ask anew,
parachuting down on Egyption sand,
Major Walsh plays his hand.

With Pte.Eccles marking the spot,
control falls to the Majors plot,
two platoon with Coates in command,
attack a pillbox as was planned.

Clements fires a bazooka shot,
Egyption soldiers lose the plot,
hands up and out they show their face,
Binnsy marches them back to base.

Major Stevens and B coy’s men,
fall amidst a snipers den,
badly wounded in the hand,
the Major stays and keeps command.

Then they attack the sewage farm,
Cpl.Woods fall, causes alarm,
with Maj.Stevens wounded again,
Captain Beale takes the rein.

C coy.attack the cemetary then,
Major Norman and his men,
call and get air support,
to halt the danger snipers thwart.

Pte Beech with bren in hand,
dispatches a soldier in the sand,
the Egyption's bazooka failed to fire,
soldiers remember to attach that wire.

To Hms. Albion, we send good cheer,
for sending us those crates of beer,
Hms.Bulwark played their part,
to quench our thirst then depart.

Waiting for commando men,
C coy. took the cemetary then,
advanced still further to the flats,
henceforth stopping sniper attacks.

B.coy. then moved into the flats,
C.coy.then the barracks attacked,
the barracks fell with great success,
C.coy. occupied the officers mess.

A military success draws to a close.
but lets not forget those we opposed,
men on both sides were very brave,
in Britains small wars heroes are made.

The most unconventional General in the British army
during the Second World War was undoubtedly Major
General Orde Charles Wingate. His eccentricity in
matters of dress, diet, and military operations had
caused comment even before the Second World War.
Military they were not successful , therefore Wingate
can only be regarded as a pioneer in that field.

Major General Orde Charles Wingate DSO.
1903- 1944

Unconventional in any day,
In diet, in dress, in military fray,
Drawing attention the year he began,
Eccentricity the master plan.

Fluent in Arabic he went to Sudan,
But shortly after a change of plan,
To Palestine the next event,
Where Jew, Arab, wouldn't relent.

Jews he favoured in this timeless war,
Advising how to settle the score,
Night patrols, surprise tactics,
Developing his bag of tricks.

Diverse, changing, never the same,
Frustrating Arabs in this little game,
Haile Selasse wanted him next,
Italian soldiers his country annexed.

Wingates skill came to the fore,
Soon Italians reigned no more,
Haile Selassie back on the throne,
Ruling Ethiopia virtually alone.

Burma next and different terrain,
Japanese soldiers ruled this domain,
Wingate ruthlessly over the top,
His badly wounded instantly shot.

But Japanese soldiers not easily fooled,
In jungle tactics efficiently schooled,
Burmese, Ghurkhas, British elite,
Speedily outwitted, made to retreat.

Deep penetration his last campaign,
For him a theory it would remain,
In '44 he took to the sky,
At 41 years young Wingate would die.
