Saint George

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. Years ago in school we used to sing a song or hymn dedicated to St George, I cant recall the whole of the lyrics but it went something like

    "Hark Hark for the battle approaches,

    Prepare for the combat of life,

    St George be our Watchword in battle,

    St George be our strength in the strife".

    There,s more to it but I cannot remember it, can anyone throw any light on this please, as it was a good rousing song, sung as a march, it might just catch on again on future St Georges Day,s.

    O.K it may sound corny, but I dont give a Rats, I,ve got my Bus Pass now.
  2. Shame on me, I don't know the full lyrics either but I'm sure Google does.
