Story Behind the Song:
Neil wrote the lyrics and music on November 11, 1986 while watching Remembrance Day services in Ottawa Ontario on TV. The next day he delivered a copy of the lyrics to the song to the editor of the local newspaper, the Brantford Expositor. The following day, November 13th, Neil was surprised and honoured to find that the editor had featured the lyrics on the editorial page of the city newspaper below this symbolic caricature:
