Political Song - "In the station, in the city"

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Long time ago now - a folk style song came out about a solider on duty across the water - stuck in the middle of the political battle.

    The lyrics went along the lines of...

    "In the station, in the city, the British soldier stood;
    Talking to the people there, if the people would;
    Some just stared in hatred whilst others stared in vain;
    And the lonley British soldier whished he was back home again;"

    (Excuse my singing voice!)

    I'm trying to get a copy -or details of the actual name or artist, not for any political reason, mainly sentimental as it was always being played during my younger days as a junior.
     
  2. Harvey Andrews - the soldiers song
     
  3. Does anyone have the song in MP3 format?
    I had it years ago (when they still used cassette tapes) would really appreciate a copy if anyone has it ?

    Cheers
