Quotes

Vesta Tilley: [singing] We've watched you playing cricket and every type of game./In football, golf, and polo you men have made your name./But now your country calls you to play your part in war,/And no matter what befalls you, we shall love you all the more./So come and join the forces, as your fathers did before.
