Poppy Day 2008

Posted by berkeleyscot on November 8, 2008

There are 2 songs I want to share today, both composed by Scottish born Eric Bogle,  who now lives in Australia.

The Band Played Waltzing Matilda

The Green Fields of France

Eric’s own renditions are moving, as are those of Joan Baez and the Corries.

Appreciate all of them and reflect on Poppy Day.
