Here is a medley of songs recorded in The Coach and Horses in Soho last Saturday, when the veterans came to the pub for a pint and a sing-song around the piano, all much to the delight and amazement of those who found themselves in the pub at the same time. What a heart-warming and uplifting event it was – both for the veterans and all the punters. Friends were made, hands were shaken, a few tears were shed. At one point, there were at least 200 people crammed into the pub, all singing We’ll Meet Again and the National Anthem. There was nothing to do except stop and stare, or join in.
The event was organised with the help and support of The London Taxi Benevolent Association for the War Disabled. It took place during the first Fun Palace weekend, a national celebration of arts, culture and science.
