Lest we Forget


Recommended Posts

Today is the eleventh day of the eleventh month.


At 11am the country will observe a two minute period of silence in memory of those who gave so much. Barring your political views of current wars please be respectfull for all those who have given the ultimate sacrifice



They went with songs to the battle, they were young.

Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.

They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,

They fell with their faces to the foe.


They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.


At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We will remember them.
