Remembrance Day 2019

A BATTLE FORGOTTEN

Seventy five years mark the Italian Campaign
Where mountain passes pooled with rain,
Men and trucks held deep in gumbo mire
Weapons held high, ready to fire.

Liberated by our troops amid the woe
Ortona, Rimini and Cassino,
Now free to rebuild and to mend
The devastation placed on them.

Troops in Sicily and Italy bled and fought
D Day Dodgers, they were not,
We should all bear in mind
They broke the Gustov, Gothic and Hitler lines.

No matter what front they fought upon
Many never saw another dawn,
Respect those who answered the call
Wear a Poppy today; Remember them all.

Canadian flag

Dedicated to all who served, and their families.

Jacqueline Black - 2019
Wife of Sgt W.P. Black (deceased)
