    We will remember them.

    In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row

    May there be Peace in our hearts and in the World

    REMEMBRANCE DAY

    For our king and our country, and the promise of glory
    We came from Kingston and Brighton to fight on the front lines
    Just lads from the farms and boys from the cities
    Not meant to be soldiers, we lay in the trenches
    We'd face the fighting with a smile ... or so we said
    If only we had known what danger lay ahead

    The sky turned to grey as we went into battle
    On the fields of Europe young men were fallin'
    I'll be back for you someday - it won't be long
    If I can just hold on `til the bloody war is over

    The guns will be silent - on Remembrance Day
    There'll be no more fighting - on Remembrance Day

    By October of `18 Cambrai had fallen
    Soon the war would be over and we'd be returning
    Don't forget me while I'm gone far away
    Well, it won't be long `til I'm back there in your arms again

    The guns will be silent - on Remembrance Day
    There'll be no more fighting - on Remembrance Day

    One day soon I don't know when
    You know we'll all be free and the bells of peace will ring again
    The time will come for you and me
    We'll be going home when this bloody war has ended

    The guns will be silent - on Remembrance Day
    We'll all say a prayer - on Remembrance Day

    ... on Remembrance Day ...
    ... say a little prayer ...
    ... on Remembrance Day ...

    Well, the guns will be silent
    There'll be no more fighting
    We'll lay down our weapons
    On Remembrance Day

    ... on Remembrance Day ...



    We will never forget. :'(

    Why does all this Sacrifice of Good Men, mean nothing to Politicians and their Ambitions??.........

    Who was it said...."They were Lions led by Donkeys".....after all that horrifying death and disaster.....Why is it that lessons are NEVER learnt...whereby some jumped up little squirt can condemn millions to Death on a whim........

    God Bless 'em All that 'did' what was required......

    :) As a veteran, I say "thank you". To my fellow veterans I say "well done". To those currently in uniform I say "thanks for carrying on".

    Remember the price of freedom is not free.

    Thanks

    Max Hoffman. i'm reading Alan Clark's "Diaries" at the moment, in the front it says he wrote a book called "The Donkeys" which is about the British Generals during WW1. i might get it.

    Amen Chise,

    Listened to NPR yesterday. There are 5 WW1 Vets still w/us and their interviews were given. It was heart wrenching to hear that they are still haunted by their experiences. I have been to Wash DC many times but I cannot bring myself to visit the Vietnam Memorial Wall. A young man I know well is a basket case from the 1st Gulf War and my Son-in-Law has been showing erratic signs since getting out of this present one. Seems those damn Donkeys are still among us!
