If your officer's dead and the sergeants look white,

    Remember it's ruin to run from a fight:

    So take open order, lie down, and sit tight,

    And wait for supports like a soldier.

    Wait, wait, wait like a soldier . . .

    When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,

    Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains

    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.

    Go, go, go like a soldier,

    Go, go, go like a soldier,

    Go, go, go like a soldier,

    So-oldier of the Queen!

- Rudyard Kipling
