The Twelve Days of Christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
The Black Watch sent to me
Twelve different soldiers,
Eleven pipers piping,
The Tenth Battalion marching,
Nine scarlet jackets,
Eight red hackles showing,
Seven rifles a-shooting,
Six rations in packaging,
Five golden cap badges,
Four ceremonial swords,
Three French spoons,
Two Victoria Crosses,
And a medal from Ashantee!
