Lest we forget....

"When war shall cease this lonely unknown spot
Of many a pilgrimage will be the end,
And flowers will shine in this now barren plot
And fame upon it through the years descend:
But many a heart upon each simple cross
Will hang the grief, the memory of its loss."

From "A Soldier's Cemetery" by John William Streets (known as Will) who died, aged 31 on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, July 1st 1916

  2. but people DO forget, so I am happy that you reminded us of the unfailing courage of the men and women who sacrificed their lives to fight evil.

    All love,
