A Petawawa camp song
Dennis Bryan was a mechanic in Medford, Massachusetts, who came to Canada to enlist in the Canadian Field Artillery in May 1917. A month later, he wrote this song, to the tune of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," in honour of the camp at Petawawa, Ontario. Bryan survived the First World War, but his son Roland was killed at Dieppe during the Second World War.
