There are far more knowledgable on here than me - but it sounds like it may have been attached to a WS convoy (WS14 or 15)

OHMS is On His Majesties Service

Wait for the experts to arrive though
The only real life is the life of the travelling man
As free as the smoke are folk of the travelling band
At peace with breeze, the sea and the birds on the pond
As we wander the track that leads to the back of beyond
