From bygone battlefields and the depths of many graves
Rumble the murmured protests of the honourable and brave.
Old comrades and young friends who fell
Beneath a regimental standard in combat’s hell
Remember our Army and the heroes circumstance has made.
Those who fought in foreign fields,
Winning the victory or dying in defeat rather than yield.
Selfless soldiers defended our Nation’s honour and bled.
They made the greatest sacrifice to keep our children safe in bed.
Brave friends who fought for truth with verve
Now, demand justice for the battalions in which they served.
They cry out from the darkness, “Our regiments must not merge!”
