Keep Right on to The End of the Road! ..Day 12…A Slight Change of Plan!

Keep Right on to The End of the Road! ..Day 12…A Slight Change of Plan!


To Bloggers Everywhere!

I am in the middle of a Blog Project and some of you may have heard of it! Beth Hewitt’s Simple Blogging Network 30Day Challenge – for details of the next challenge in early 2014 please add your details in the comments box below.

Anywhere, I have been toiling away on this project and other important matters and then at 6.00 this morning I remember my Grandfather telling me about a song – “Keep Right on to The End of the Road! ” Well, don’t we all feel sometimes that we need to hear an inspirational song to “keep us marching along!” I think this song suits the occasion very well and perhaps not many people know about it!

With the Remembrances Services still wringing so meaningfully in our ears this song tells the story of the horrendous times of the First World War in particular. So although this song is about the happenings of nearly a century ago I think the sentiments sang therein are still relevant today.

So here is “Keep Right on to The End of the Road” and that is what we must do to achieve all our dreams and ambitions.

“Hi You Tubers and friends

I am using this record by Harry Lauder to demo the Garrard Record Deck SP25 MK3 with the new Stanton stylus.

From Wikipedia:

Sir Harry was a great Scottish Tenor and sung a lots of songs from the music hall. Harry died on the 26th Feb 1950.

When World War I broke out, Lauder was in Melbourne on one of his Australian tours. During the war, he led successful fundraising efforts for war charities, organised a tour of music halls in 1915 for recruitment purposes, and entertained the troops under enemy fire in France. He suffered personal tragedy during the war, when his only son, John (1891–1916), a captain in the 8th Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, was killed in action on 28 December 1916 at Poiziers. Harry wrote the song “Keep Right on to the End of the Road” in the wake of John’s death and had a monument built for his son, who was buried in France, in the little Lauder cemetery in Glenbranter. For his services during the war, Lauder was knighted in January 1919.

Winston Churchill stated that Lauder, “…by his inspiring songs and valiant life, rendered measureless service to the Scottish race and to the British Empire.

      Hi Paudie, many thanks for your message and you are right – Never give up!
      I think I will send a reminder amount never quitting!

      Cheers John

    You never know where the road will take you. I have quit and then wondered, “what would have happened if…” And I’ve also persisted to the end, with much more satisfying results. Nice reminder, and well timed for me.
