    Soldier Brother. I'll see you smiling through the years and keep the leaves of memory green; soldier Brother through life's tears I'll treasure all that might have been. Your noble spirit isn't dead, Your triumphed o'er the gaping grave; although your blood of life was shed You live among the deathless brave. From pleasant paths of childhood's day, The happy haunts of home and youth, Mow sounds an echo far away of mankind's plea for truth. Written by Blanche Holloway (Sister) and published in the NZ Herald, November 1943. AWMM
