Customer Review

on 12 December 2013
Robb Johnson's updated version of the family history chronicling his two grandfather's involvement in the first world war and it's aftermath is at times touching, angry and occasionally funny. Roy Bailey reprises his part as Harry and Ernie from the earlier and long deleted version and his older voice really highlights the suffering that men at the front line had to endure. Barb Jungr's wonderfully expressive singing also adds an extra dimension to the women's voices. The accompanying music is at times jaunty but somehow totally appropriate. There are stand out songs (Dead Man's Pennies and The Silence of the Salient for example) but it as a whole that the experience really hangs together.

The book that accompanies is printed on high quality paper and crammed with photos and memories. All in all an excellent production.

Buy this but even better get out to see a live performance if you can. Is it better than the original? Impossible to say but it is different and with the centenary of the outbreak of the great war almost upon us totally relevant
