Pack Up Your Troubles…

Being remembrance week, we’ve been looking a little into how troops kept their morale during war. As it happens, music played and still plays a huge role in the morale boosting of soldiers. These songs did not just feature in the First World War, but also the Second World War, and the Vietnam War (as well as most wars throughout history). Popular choices were ‘Pack up your Troubles in your Old Kit Bag’, ‘We’ll Meet Again’, and ‘House of the Rising Sun’; these and many more songs formed a part of history and keep that history alive when heard. For that, we will remember them.
