British WWII Veterans Rout Hooligans


The Telegraph reports:

A gang of youths who tried to ruin a pensioners’ open-air concert were beaten back and fled when faced by a “Dad’s Army” armed with walking sticks.

More than 30 youngsters, aged between 18 and 25, yelled obscenities at the brass band and kicked footballs at the conductor while terrorising the 300-strong elderly audience, which included Second World War veterans.

But a battalion of 20 pensioners, moved by a rendition of the theme from The Great Escape, rose from their deck chairs and formed a front line of attack. Wielding walking sticks, they advanced towards the enemy.

The youths lost ground and eventually turned on their heels and fled.

Please have a look at this website.
I am the writer of these songs.
” 1939 CLOSING OF THE DAY ” 1945. this song is often played on local BBC radio and has recieved great reviews .
I wrote this song as a tribute for remembrance day .I did offer this song ” free of charge ” to the Royal British Legion as a tool for raising funds but they refused to consider the idea .however due to public requests for the song the BBC continue to play the song on a regular basis .if you would like a copy of the song please let me have your email address and I will forward you a copy by return. Thank-you for your time
