The ANZAC Dedication: For the Fallen
by Laurence Binyon

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.
We will remember them.

Your post appreciated.

In our local newspaper as the obituary column is read, the local Canadian Legion puts this beautiful tribute at the end of each members announcement.

It might be explained that Winston Churchill took the flak for the failed expedition. A brilliant idea of course. How they continued when the object of it was clearly impossible, I have not studied. The Russians were said to have a squad of ten men and only one had a repeating rifle. Had a passage way been forced to Russia, a million rifles and fifty rounds each, could have been shipped over land. The ill equipped Russians finally met with a terrible defeat at Tannenburg. It is claimed men having to take a rifle from a comrade's dead body.

Changing the subject, I believe the victory has been re-enacted to commemorate the American victory over Mexico at San Jacinto. Fannin avenged.
