I recently obtained a book entitled 'The Battle Of Bogside' at a car boot sale. In the back cover there is a handwritten poem entitled 'The Soldier In Derry' and states it was written by 'some of the lads of 73 Amphibious Engineer Squadron during our last tour of Londonderry 9/3/76 to 30/6/76.' I thought I'd post it here as a reminder to any lads who may have had a hand in penning it. 'The Soldier In Derry' In Derry stands a soldier with a rifle in his hand, He only stands on corners or patrols Old Derry Strand. The people call him 'Limey' and lots of other names, But the soldier stands and takes it and there's many more the same. If he walked around the corner and was shot right through the head, "It's another soldier DEAD" But the people here in Derry do not seem to understand, That he's not "Just" another soldier With a rifle in his hand He's a husband, he's a father He's some lonely Mothers son, And not a cardboard target For some bloody snipers gun.
