From Tracey McRory:
This is a new WW1 song and a special collaboration between Northern Ireland songwriter Richard Laird, Irish Songwriter Tracey McRory and Belgian Songwriter Jo Lottegier. Tracey and Richard have been working on music and Remembrance of WW1 for the last 10 years and along with Sam Starrett wrote the haunting song “John Condon.”
“The Lost Boy” tells the story of George Llewelyn Davies, who along with his four younger brothers was the inspiration for playwright J. M. Barrie’s characters of Peter Pan and the Lost Boys. George was killed in Flanders, Belgium, on the 15th March 1915, he was just 21 years old. On his 100 Anniversary, Tracey McRory played a special version of this song on violin at his grave, and also at The Menin Gate Ceremony, Ypres. The song is not for sale, but exists only to let people know the story of George Llewellyn Davis.
Another young boy killed too soon….. Lest We Forget
We will remember him.
