The end sequence from Richard Attenborough’s adaption of Oh! What A Lovely War

And when they ask us / How dangerous it was
Oh we’ll never tell them / No we’ll never tell them
We spent our pay in some café / And fought wild women night and day
T’was the cushiest job we ever had.
And when they ask us / And they’re certainly going to ask us
The reason why we didn’t win the Croix de Guerre
Oh we’ll never tell them / No we’ll never tell them
There was a front / But damned if we knew where

    >Yes, yes, yes. It is an utterly brilliant ending: chilling, moving and hits the target with unerring accuracy.
