We will remember them ...

... So I'm back as promised. I'll make this short, the reason I wanted to post twice today was because I wanted to share this LO with you. Today is Remembrance Sunday here in the UK and here's my tribute to all those in the armed forces who have made 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.

“Ode of Remembrance” from the poem For The Fallen
written by Laurence Binyon in 1914
