    The Artillery Toast

    I've heard a slightly different version: "May our shots be true & timely And our observations keen; May our barks roll out like thunder In the name of home & Queen; May all the ranks of tanks & bayonets Take heed of the power of the guns; For of all the Lords of battle, WE are the chosen...

    The Gagetown Thread- Merged
