The Ode of Remembrance

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. 

Lest we forget. 

The Gallipoli Story

In Flanders Fields

By Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae  
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow  
Between the crosses, row on row, 
That mark our place; and in the sky 
The larks, still bravely singing, fly 
Scarce heard amid the guns below. 

We are the Dead.  Short days ago 
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, 
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie 
In Flanders fields. 

Take up our quarrel with the foe: 
To you from failing hands we throw 
The torch, be yours to hold it high. 
If ye break faith with us who die 
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow 
In Flanders fields.
