We Will Remember Them

Section:

The 100th anniversary of Armistice Day should be marked by remembering those that gave their lives and how lucky our generation truly is

 

It can be put very simply: Today, we will remember them.

‘For The Fallen’ by Robert Laurence Binyon:

With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
England mourns for her dead across the sea.
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
Fallen in the cause of the free.

 

Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres.
There is music in the midst of desolation
And a glory that shines upon our tears.

 

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, 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.

 

They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England’s foam.

 

But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
As the stars are known to the Night;

As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain,
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.

  1. Again — WRONG CHOICE!! You should not be wasting time on killing and killers in the military but instead should support dear Gerry and Kate McCann in their efforts to find their beloved daughter Madeleine. Enough is enough Steeple — we need to FIND MADELEINE AND FIND HER NOW.

    • We should be spending time on murderous doctors and bringing them to justice for their crimes. Are you off hunting for the corpse yet Madam Trott? It was in the back of the McCann’s hired car. In a cupboard in 5a too and Kate’s clothes reeked. Yes yes we heard the excuses about inspect corpses at work . The dogs didn’t lie.

  2. A fitting article. Whilst I normally abhor unpleasantness in responses to your musings, in this case I will happily make an exception to my own rule and declare that the deeply irritating hag Gillian Trott should be dragged to the Menin Gate and publicly shot
