Valentine (from the album Dragonfly) by Reg Meuross

I wrote ‘Valentine’ after reading about the killing of friendly fire of Lance-Corporal Matty Hull in Iraq by American pilots in March 2003. I became aware of the story on February 14th, 2007 when I saw online that The Sun were boasting of a link to a graphic video of the incident. I thought it was a disgusting invasion of the privacy of Matty’s family to use such a tragic event in this way. And the circumstances seemed particularly poignant on Valentine’s day when a young widow might feel the loss of her loved one even more acutely.

The album Dragonfly has been re-issued (2019) and is now available HERE.
