Britannia’s ‘Huns’ | History Today

Bodies of British officers killed in Dublin on Bloody Sunday are taken for burial,  25 November 1920 © Hulton Getty Images.

’Twas better to die ’neath an Irish sky than at Suvla or Sud-El-Bar
And from the plains of Royal Meath strong men came hurrying through
While Britannia’s Huns, with their long range guns, sailed in through the foggy dew.
