Remembrance Day 2014

No Lessons Learned

One hundred years since the "Great War"
When soldiers left their peaceful shore,
And fought to keep our freedom.

New air power used in combat roles
Mustard gas, enclosed their fox holes,
While tanks destroyed the land.

So many deaths; so much fear
They wondered if their time was near,
On blood covered battlefields.

A century of wars, and still we fight
To erase the wrong; to protect what's right,
A wasteland of squandered lives.

Years pass by and Veterans age
Memories dulled amid a haze,
Yet proudly they stand.

Honour them on Remembrance Day
Wear a Poppy as a wreath you lay,
Grateful for their service.

Flag

Dedicated to all who served, and their families.

Jacqueline Black - 2014
Wife of Sgt W.P. Black (deceased)
