This CD album was compiled from the original soundtrack produced by Crocodile Music for a Channel 4 TV programme `Lions Led By Donkeys` based on the book `The Donkey’s` by the late Alan Clark in which the author examined the relationships within the British High Command during 1915. More recently a selection of this music was featured in the BBC TV programme `I Was There` The Great War interviews.

This album is unique in that it features a lesser known WW1 poem `Out of the fields I see them pass` by John Galsworthy set to music, also included is the first recording of `The Uniform Grey` composed in 1909 it was the marching song of the 13th Princess Louise’s Kensington Battalion, the London Regiment one of London’s Grey Brigade.
