This year sees the 40th anniversary of my writing ‘Margarita’ and the 100th anniversary of the carnage of the Somme. The song tells the true story of a young girl and the fiancé she lost to the battle, and has been the most requested song of my career.
With the help of Bruce Davies, Jonathan Dewsbury and Seonaid Aitken I have re-recorded the song for download only.
You may know it well, but millions of people don’t, so we ask you to share it with as many friends and organisations as you can.
The reason for the re-recording is to raise funds for the Forces Children’s Trust. So if you have Forces connections we particularly ask you to share the link.
We guarantee that £1.00 from each download will be paid to the charity and details of money raised will be posted on my website.
I hope you find the new version worth downloading and, in anticipation, let me thank all of you who help to spread word of this worthy cause.
