Recording of the song titled, 'The Laddies who fought and won', created as part of the Music and the First World War project. Music and lyrics written by Harry Lauder. Produced by Chris Latham, with David Hidden as vocalist (baritone), and Alan Hicks on piano. This recording was made at Flat Rock Studios, Sydney, on 23 March 2018. The work is performed in the spirit of the time with some changes made for the modern ear.

Chris Latham, producer of this recording, notes: 'The lyrics of this song feature the combination of mother and patriotism where the nation is portrayed as a mother. The words talk about the idea that when armistice happens, soldiers will be rewarded by women.'
