The story of young Billy, a teenager conscripted in 1916 to go and fight in the war.

Two rappers have come together to tell the story of young Billy, a teenager conscripted in 1916 to go and fight in WW1.

This is a music collaboration between Newport's MC Gareth Leaman (Versatile) and DJ Jamie Winchester, Pentalk Lab, at the Riverfront. Scratching, beat matching and beat juggling, they pay tribute to the soldiers that lost their lives in WWI.

Made by young people in Wales as part of the campaign to commemorate the 90th anniversary of Amistice, bringing young and old together in the act of Remembrance.
