The Loyal North Lancs. have come well to the fore,
And loyal they are to their very hearts core,
And when they come back how we’ll give up our thanks,
For our great gallant back of our famous 6th North Lancs.

They are Lancashire lads and terrors too,
As the Turks soon found when a thousand or two,
With their British cheers rush up to the fray,
And with rifle and bayonet won the day.

The Turks cried loudly for mercy,
But no mercy to Belgium did Germany show,
No helpers and friends
Resolve to stand by her until the end.

On the night of the charge as the lads all knew,
Twas the great anniversary of Waterloo,
And the thought of that battle inspired them with hope,
As they swept o’er the Turks like rain down a slope.

And still they are fighting with no thought of fear,
Except for the loved ones who wait over here,
For though we can’t be there to give them our thanks,
They know we are proud of the 6th North Lancs.

Private Joe Morgans,
168 Prendergast, Haverfordwest
6th North Lancs.

June 1916
