WOMEN AT WAR by Bill Charlton

They often go unheralded though they too did their time.
Alongside the soldiers in the front line.
These are the women who served as nurses and more.
With their lives in great danger when they went to war.

There were the nurses in aid stations close to the front.
Who suffered from the shelling as they took the brunt.
The sight of the injuries of the wounded and the dying.
Would have lesser folk weeping and crying.

But they stood by their posts and performed their job well.
In conditions described as a real living hell.
They tended the wounded, and nursed the maimed.
Their expertise was appreciated and they were well-trained.

Some volunteered as spies, and were flown in France.
A role fraught with peril but they still took their chance.
So many brave women answered the call.
They also made sacrifices and many would fall.

Our women also served in World War Two.
There were so many roles that they now could do.
In every field our women were present.
Many nurses were held in Japanese prisons.

Raped and tortured their prospects looked dim.
But they had great courage, and fight still within.
Many survived the war and told their tales,
Of the suffering experienced in the enemy gaols.

Even today our servicewomen excel.
They hold key positions and they do their job well.
In the Army, the Navy and the Air Force they shine.
We salute all these women who serve in the front line!
