The countryside was alive with life and colour All the jewelled colours of the rainbow like butterflies on the tips of beautiful plants and trees lazily shaking in a warm light Devon breeze most of the roads had been covered by ancient willows their branches arching over like great bridges grasses rustling against their boughs On the other side of the embracing willows was a shelving inviting golden sandy bank The sea a haven for all wildlife the glistening fish visible from the beach The last of the days warm sunlight was shining calmly beautiful on our backs Fire All our guns opened up The gunnery officer had us charging full pace over the sand-dunes Those sand-dunes If I was a blind man I reckon I could still feel my way over them to our exact positions again Fire As I shot my rifle my stomach rumbled it was almost tea time Then up and charging over the sand-dunes again Sometimes I felt as if I was going to run up and down the sand-dunes for the rest of my life only having breaks for tea Wed become fit though Fit tough and ready Wed need to be ready We knew it was coming knew that we werent really all going to grow old running up and down sand-dunes It was coming and coming soon We moved that night Into trucks thirty at a time Full burgeons rifles everything clanking and knocking together Into the truck falling over feet tin cups rifles Squashing up as close as we could Move you lazy slob Get off my foot Lardy Stop hogging all the space in the corner Off we went Bumping through the dark lanes in the dark night Good-bye lovely Devon Good-bye quiet nights Good-bye safety The mistily fading willows formed eerie silhouettes in the background Effortlessly swooping from the dark skies an owl eyes dangerously glowing arrow-like in its direction of an evening
