Inspired by Vera Brittain’s renowned autobiography Testament of Youth, the song is written from the perspective of a nurse caring for those in the trenches during WW1 and wondering whether her fiancé is still alive.
Portraying a mixture of pride and pain, which many modern Army families will relate to, the song has particular resonance at Christmas time which can be especially tough for those of us who cannot be together.
Matthew Davis, songwriter and band member, explained: “My dad served time in the Army… my mum spent months apart from him and had to bring up my eldest sister almost entirely on her own for the first two years.”
Giving families a voice
AFF works hard to ensure that all Army families, Regular or Reserve, are heard and receive the information and support they need wherever they are and whatever the time of year.
Matthew said: “We decided to support the work of AFF because families of Army personnel are often the unsung heroes- having to deal with a range of pressures few of us have to face.”
