GUEST,Shirley What did your Dad used to sing? (206* d) RE: What did your Dad used to sing? 16 Jun 14


My Dad also sang the Bombin raid every new year. He had been in the Royal Engineers during the war. He was a Dundonian through and through.
He also sang a song about a soldier being fleeced of his money by two "flash girls" then committing suicide in his barracks. On this soldier's tombstone was written.    Don't go a courtin' flash girls of the city. flash girls of the city were the ruin of me.
