Chris Doheny: Remembrance song

Posted on: Mon 9 Jul 2018

Chris and his muso friend Ronny Addlem co-wrote a song called ‘Gallipoli’…   It was inspired by remembrance of their fathers and grandfathers who served in the World Wars, but went on to become a commemoration song for all who served or continue to serve. Chris’s Dad was in the Royal Australian Navy aboard HMAS Adelaide and HMAS Shropshire during World War 2. Chris tells us what life was like post-war with Dad.
