106 years ago, the First World War was just a few months old. In the snowy winter fields of Belgium, thousands of British and German soldiers sat in their trenches thinking of their families back home. What then took place was a remarkable event, soldiers from both sides walked into 'no mans land' and socialised as well as having a game of football. This hand of friendship was named 'The Christmas Truce'. Back home, Ivor Norvello was writing a song for the families titled 'Keep The Home Fires Burning' A song of hope, that one day soon, loved ones would again reunite. Today, I have a new recording; a more modern version of the original Novello song 'Keep The Home Fires Burning'. Hope you my version (Thanks Tony for this text).
Hi Jan my friend A very interesting number very well played and put together a pleasure to both listen to and watch you playing it !! All my best seasonal greetings to you and all your family and lets hope 2021 brings things back to where they used to be
Hi Johan. Your rendition of this number along with the photos was very moving. It reminded me that despite 2020 being such a problematic year we really do have a lot to be grateful for. Many thanks. I trust 2021 will be better for all of us. Dave
