Bless 'em All - Airborne

Bound for a foreign shore;

As into our gliders we crawl,
We are lucky fellers ---we've got no propellers
So cheer up my lads, bless 'em all.

note: Hours before the naval invasion of Normandy on D-Day (June 6
1944), advance parties of airborne infantry were landed behind
the German lines in a fleet of gliders to help disrupt the German
