Peat Bog Soldiers.. written in 1933 by some of the first victims in Hitler's concentration camps.. I think it may have been Belsen. Only 3 verses and the last one is as follows:-
But for us there's no complaining,
Winter will in time be past,
One day we shall cry rejoicing,
Homeland dear you're mine at last.
Then will the peat bog soldiers,
March no more with their spades,
To the moor.
