Diana, you complete buffoon. Tommy was traumatized by the death of his mother's lover, after Tommy's father returned from WWII to find them both. He was told that he didn't hear or see anything. This represents the mood of England after the demise of the British Empire. From there the songs represent the experiences of a 'typical' English boy in this post-war era.
Clearly, you have neither the interest nor the inclination to research the events you purport to cover. It's sad, really. The Riverfront TImes deserves better.
