John Claude Wright
WHO WILL WEAR YOUR MEDALS?
Who will wear your medals John Claude?
You were a great uncle , an uncle, a brother, a son
A plaque of remembrance in a far away country,
Reminding those there of an unknown soldier.
Fighting for their freedom,
Fighting for our freedom.
A hero of the Great War
Our hero, an unknown great uncle
A medal only for those never to return home,
A medal never able to wear.
My three brothers and I,
Standing together, tall,shoulder to shoulder
With dignity, upright,proud.
Carrying the reminder of sacrifice-
For our family,for our country,
For our freedom.
We will wear your medals, John Claude,
Beside the flanders poppy.
We will remember them,
We will remember them.
