Lest We Forget

Jay Gould, 19th century US robber baron: “I can hire one half of the working class to kill the other half”.

THE dollar was higher at noon, rising back above the 83 US cent mark following more soft US economic data overnight.

The local currency was trading at $US0.8299/05 at 12pm AEST, up from yesterday’s close of 0.8239/44.

With local traders on the sidelines due to the ANZAC Day public holiday, the dollar’s movement has been driven by offshore trade in the United States, Europe and Asia.

Eleven-year-old Travis Willmott from Narre Warren says he has been impressed by the medals decorating the chests of those marching.

“I like to see all the people who got all the badges because I like badges — they are nice and shiny,” he said.

If you want to find the general
I know where he is
I know where he is
I know where he is
If you want to find the general
I know where he is
He’s pinning another medal on his chest
I saw him, I saw him
Pinning another medal on his chest
Pinning another medal on his chest

If you want to find the colonel
I know where he is
I know where he is
I know where he is
If you want to find the colonel
I know where he is
He’s sitting in comfort stuffing his bloody gut
I saw him, I saw him
Sitting in comfort stuffing his bloody gut
Sitting in comfort stuffing his bloody gut

If you want to find the sargeant
I know where he is
I know where he is
I know where he is
If you want to find the sargeant
I know where he is
He’s drinking all the company rum
I saw him, I saw him
Drinking all the company rum
Drinking all the company rum

If you want to find the private
I know where he is
I know where he is
I know where he is
If you want to find the private
I know where he is
He’s hanging on the old barbed wire
I saw him, I saw him
Hanging on the old barbed wire
Hanging on the old barbed wire
