Remembrance Day

Tomorrow, November 11, is Veteran’s Day in the US, Remembrance Day in the Commonwealth countries, formerly known as Armistice Day to commemorate the end of hostilities in “The Great War” (WWI). Today’s show features music on the theme of soldiery, from light-hearted songs to grim takes on death. The Scottish experience of WWI was intense; although Scots made up only about 10% of the British forces, they suffered nearly 20% of the casualties. A significant fraction of the eligible male population went overseas and a large fraction of those never returned. Inevitably, this experience found expression in poetry and song.
