A compilation of poems and other material from WW1 has been gathered at the National Archives

However, a poem written by Private Baldrick of the TV series Black Adder has been included entitled "The German Guns."

The German Guns by Pte S O Baldrick

Boom, boom, boom, boom

Boom, boom, boom

Boom, boom, boom, boom

Boom, boom, boom.

A spokesman for the National Archive tried to laugh off the gaffe with a bigger gaffe by saying “Someone’s going to be shot for this”, which created a immediate storm on social media for its insensitivity.
