The Lead Regiment.

Not a illustration of the author as a young man ! . Rather dated and a bit twee , but I like a poem that rhymes !.


  1. I prefer the poem quoted in Roger Moote's biography -
    I once had a box of toy soldiers
    I broke off the Colonel's head
    I smashed all the sergeants and corporals
    Now I play with my privates instead
    (quoting from memory, so may not be word perfect)
