Lest we forget


#1

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.

In Flanders fields the poppies grow
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.

To everyone I hope you have safe Anzac Day.
To all servicemen and women, past and present-Thank You

As an American, I give thanks to the ANZACS for always being there along side our own.

There is an Anzac cemetry at Harefield about 5 miles from where I live. If I had known it was Anzac Day today I would have gone out there and laid some flowers. They were wounded that were evacuated to this country but died before they could make it home. They were all so young.

In 1959,while serving with the 1st. Special Forces Gp. I had the great luck to be selected to attend the British Jungle Warfare School in Malaya (Their targets shot back).Many of our instructors in the School were from the Royal Australian Regt. A great group of people. God Bless them all.
