lovely dance to sad but beautiful sure to watch video to the very end as the choreographer has gone to a lot of trouble to make the video in keeping with the story of the song.wonderful.

Just watched the full video as "madwoman" suggested, had to watch it several times because it was so moving. Such a wonderful tribute to the soldiers, on both sides, of the First World War. I hope people pick up on this dance and it gets widely done on this centenary year.

ChrissyL November 15, 2014
Just taught myself this dance. Flows well and fits the music perfectly. Had to try the parts where the music breaks a couple of times to get the timing right, but no problem thereafter. Also tried it to Old Soldiers and it works very well, perhaps even a little bit easier. Love it.

Another good dance by The Highlander will look forward to dancing it.
