‘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.’
‘When You Go Home, Tell Them Of Us And Say,
For Their Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today.’
In particular Sue and I will be remembering two of our relatives who died during the Great War:
‘We will remember them.’
- Corporal Ephraim Cordery (killed on the first day of the Battle of Krithia Vineyard, Gallipoli, 6th August 1915) and
- Able Seaman Sidney Digby (killed aboard HMS Vindictive at Zeebrugge, 23rd April 1918).
