White Crosses

Thousands of white crosses
Standing all in a row
As I walk among them
The tears begin to flow
They walked into battle
Showing no fear
Gave their lives for their country
Now they are buried here

Thousands of white crosses
Marked with name and rank
I walk in between them
Wondering which one to thank
I fall to my knees
Thanks for being so brave
We can not thank you enough
For that which you gave

Thousands of white crosses
To remember you by
Somewhere to go
And ask ourselves why
But we all know why you did it
Your dedication to all men
We give you our gratitude
God Bless you, Amen.


From For The Fallen

Laurence Binyon (1869-1943)

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.

Allan was in the Command turret at the top of his beast, pictured below.
