You said you would remember us. But you forgot.

My name is Tommy

I was born in Swindon, and so I’ve always been a devoted follower of my hometown club.
But, when I was in my twenties, I had to suspend that support and go off to fight in a war.
The enemy – then, as now – was fascism.
We defeated it (or so I thought), but I made the ultimate sacrifice.
Now that sacrifice has been descecrated, and the manager of my beloved Swindon Town wears a tribute to Mussolini on his arm.
And no one seems to care.
