Leave a tribute or memory of
Leonard Henry Trent
Public - Nathan John - 18 August 2017
Langlois has affirmed,twice a two tug call
Shand lying ahead ghostly we stall
On the lip of the mouth;I await the Jerry ghoul.
Trudging forward I cannot stay,Mick bolts for the pines away!
Point blank,I rest stiffened gamely prey.
We line now by three helplessly;Mc Bride on a rung perilously
"Von Lindeiner" reviles amidst chaos degree.
The escape is thwarted,we remain spiritedly undaunted
As I Len Trent homage those fifty vaunted!
The storm has passed,the calm is fair
Twenty six "survive" our comrades dear!
The war now ended,this eighth day forty five
Homeward my New Zealand "May" I say,lucky alive.
Remembered the airmen,for the freedom they strived!
