We wrote this song to commemorate those courageous young men and women who stood up to Nazism in late 1930s Germany and on into the war years. Known collectively as the Edelweiss Pirates because of the metal badges they wore emblazoned with the flower, their group name in Cologne was The Navajos.
After a splendid evening at Chesham Folk Club, we were pleased to be moving on immediately to another gig the following evening at another of our favourite clubs, the Hoy-at-Anchor Folk Club, held in The Royal British Legion club in Westcliff-on-Sea, near Southend.
It is always a pleasure to perform at Chesham Folk Club. The welcome is invariably warm, the banter is great and the club musicians of the highest quality.
