It was based loosely a feature I read in a Sunday supplement, about a former soldier..probably a former para, who'd come home from the Falklands after the war, a little bit disillusioned. He'd then joined the hippie convoty and gone native..dreadlocks, pet rat, living in an old ambulance. From war vet to hippie. I doubt if that was what had been envisaged for him by anyone. The rest of the song was based on my own experiences of returning to England from far distant places. Little did I know that within a few years, I too would visit the Falklands, stand on Mt Tumbledown and watch the ships leaving Port Stanley. Be careful of what you write, I say. Replies:
