...a pictorial tribute
They shall not grow 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 Lest we forget.
Laurence Binjon 1869-1942
"In peace sons bury their fathers, but war violates the order of nature, and fathers bury their sons."
