    The pic is from "They were Expendable." I'll take a wild arse stab in the dark and say the quote is from "Too Late the Hero."

        The long toll of the brave
        Is not lost in darkness
        Over the fruitful earth
        And athwart the seas
        Hath passed the light of noble deeds
        Unquenchable forever.

          Thanks for the correction. I had not vetted the quote from the source I got it from. It got mixed with the famous WWI song.

          The line is by Colour Sergeant Bourne. With regard to the picture, Bourne was very far from looking like the stereotypical British sergeant played by Nigel Green. He was only 24 (the youngest colour sergeant in the Army), only 5'6", and called "the kid".

            Yep, and he lasted long enough to see the Jerries get stuffed in WW2 as well.
