I invite you all to join with me on Remembrance Day, the 11th November, in a celebration of peace to mark the 90th Anniversary of the end of the First Worlds War. Thank you to all our brothers and sisters in arms, who made the ultimate sacrifice, so that we might live free.

Thank you also to all those who served and are serving now. Be safe, be well and be proud.

Bright Blessings, Herne


LEST WE FORGET

Lest we forget.gif
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.
Lest we Forget.



The Gentle Poppy

Forever will the poppies blow, between the crosses row on row,
At Fromelles and Pozieres, at Bullecourt and Ypres.
At Mouquet and Hamel, at Villers and Passchendaele,
The Hindenburg Line and Polygon, at Quentin and on the Somme.
At Messines Ridge and the Mennin Gate, at Verdun we honour and lament their fate.
In Flanders fields where brave men died, war’s peace for those where good men lie.
No greater honour could I know, than between those crosses row on row.

Thanks to my Grandad's 7 brothers who died in France in WW1.
Thanks to my Dad who fought with the 8th Army in N.Africa and Monte Casino.
Thanks to all those who fought in that f*cked up war in Vietnam.
Thanks to those putting there lives on the line for political rhetoric now.

And for those State side, it's Veterans Day.
Thanks Palladin, I did not know it was your Veterans Day, but the sentiment was equally directed to US, UK, SA, Canadian and all other servicemen/ women as well.

Thanks from me to my paternal grandfather, his five brothers, and my maternal great uncle and seven other cousins who served in France and Gallipoli in WW1. All except one (who was gassed) backed up for WW2. Thanks to my mother's four brothers who served in WW2 in Borneo, New Guinea, and Singapore; and my two aunts who served here in Australia.

Thank you ALL for what you did and what you do.

I have apparently "belittled the content of the entire thread".

For those of you who agree. I am sorry for that was not my intention.

No offense here 8pw.
The politicians and the elite who start these wars, and profit from them should also be tried for war crimes against their own people.
Send them out in the paddock with a gun and let them sought it out themselves, instead of the carnage, shattering of families, nations and economies.
Just ranting, no disrespect to those who made the supreme sacrafice.
