Thread Name: Lyr Req: Soldier (Harvey Andrews)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Soldier (Harvey Andrews)
I also have just come across this thread, and I want to thank you for the song Harvey. Mick Willets was my uncle and I was only 7 at the time, but I remember the time vividly and writing this is bringing tears to my eyes. I also agree that with some of the other posters, that to generalise as "us" and "them" is the road to ruin. All cultures/races/nationalities have their good and bad people. If we want to polarise, let all the "good" people of all races/religions stand together against the "bad" (and I realise this is a really bad generalisation, as to who defines "good", but hey, I can dream)
This obviously had a deep effect on me as I have just completed 25 years in the army myslelf.

Thanks again
