    A Roger Waters song in relation to personal grief and pain when seeing a Soldier Of War coming home, while He's [Roger Waters] imagining being in His Father's shoes as The Hero who's returning home for Him. As when once being a young child raised during WW2 and after who had grown up hard and disciplined by the teachers or the schoolmasters during those times in Cambridge after WW2. Thinking and imagining about flying over Dresden, Germany with His Father that lost His life there somewhere as a sacrifice for His Country who sadly couldn't come back for Him in real life as the Soldier's Hero return might have to see His son and family again.
