Something a little different this week and I have my friend Nick to thank for bringing this song to my notice:  it is about soldiers of the 51st (Highland) Infantry Divison leaving Sicily after the Allied invasion of 1943.  The town of Messina was evacuated by the Germans on 17th August 1943 and the Allies finally gained control of the entire island on the same day.
