The Troop-Train was published in Brittain's collection, Verses of a V.A.D. in 1918.
As we came down from Amiens,
And they went up the line,
They waved their careless hands to us,
And cheered the Red Cross sign.
And often I have wondered since,
Repicturing that train,
How many of those laughing souls
Came down the line again.
