      They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
      Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
      They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
      They fell with their faces to the foe.

      They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
      Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
      At the going down of the sun and in the morning
      We will remember them.

          Nov 11th is also Canada's Remembrance Day.

          Our thoughts are also with our brother's and sister's from the other side of the globe who have served the cause of freedom.

          THANK YOU.

            Hats off to the Aussies. I've posted this elsewhere, but Colonel Prouty mentioned 250.000 Axis troops sang Waltzing Matilda in unison when they surrendered in north Africa.
