John William's a soldier and they've sent him to Flanders.
A lad in his twenty's and barely a man.
From farmyard to battlefield, from furrows to trenches.
From reaping the harvest to plating wire fences.
Ploughing is finished and fighting commences.
He was one in thousands, just one in thousands, but he's our one.
On the 10th December, the year 1915.
John William, a private 203439.
Recruited, saluted, smart uniformed and booted.
Gave a wave to his family and said he was fine.

Clocks Go Back - Burglaries Go Up
Bedfordshire Police are warning residents across the county to be on their guard after the clocks go back this weekend providing easy pickings for burglars.
Tradionally the number of break-ins go up by as mush as half when it starts getting darker earlier, so this year, as well as special operations to target burglars, the force is giving local people guidance on how to protect their homes against this seasonal increase in burglaries.
