Bless 'em All - Airborne Thousands of gliders were leaving their base, Bound for a foreign shore; Heavily laden with my pals and me, Going by air 'cos we daren't go by sea So we're saying goodbye to them all 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 defense.
