    Poem for the Fallen.
    By Laurence Binyon.

    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.
    Public - Bron - Researcher - 23 June 2019
