Mum and Dad and Denny were some amongst the many who turned out to see the passing out parade at Puckapunyal

I was talking about 'I was only 19' in my last post.

Now before everyone knocks the remix of 'I was only nineteen', watch this:

And now listen to the remix:

I think its pretty good, more modern but the story is still the same.

The whole thing..makes me feel..sad/proud. I think every Aussie kid feel it a bit, on ANZAC day, and Remembrance day. But after reading 'well done those men' by Barry Heard , it makes it more...poignant. I recommend reading the book.

Jen, you should have saved this for an Anzac Day post. I did this one year. Interesting to hear the rap version, but the original is better I think. However, I did hear another remix that was ok.
