Thanks Megan for creating this thread and for the poem. Of course the sacrifice of all who fell must be remembered.
I remember a singer (I believe that the guy was from around the Arundel area) introducing a song he had written that had been inspired by Remembrance Day, or more correctly an eccentricity connected to his local village's Remembrance Day wreath laying ceremony. The ex-servicemen of the community would parade with medals but there was one old man who lived in the village who, although known to be an ex-serviceman, never attended. It was, however, noticed that at sunset the old man could be seen walking down to the memorial where he laid a white rose. This he did each year until the day died, shortly after, the writer of the song opened his newspaper and in the obituaries section he was surprised to see a photograph of the old eccentric staring back at him - the bulk of the text in the obituary was the account of how the deceased had won the Victoria Cross in France. The song was entitled "White Roses".
Yes each must remember in their own fashion and for their own reasons, but remember them we must.
