  • Warrior's Lament

    Although this was part of the Vimy Memorial rededication ceremony back in April, I thought it might be appropriate to post it today.

    Performed by 17 year old Sierra Noble, I believe it is also called a Metis' Prayer.

    Please have a listen, I think it is beautiful:

    Beautiful, sad and sweet at the same time.
    Those that forget history are condemed to repeat it.
    If you're going to be one you might as well be a BIG RED ONE

      Very moving Canuckster. Thanks for sharing this link. It has proved extemely poignant for me as ,today, I remember 3 great-grand uncles (the brothers of my great grand father) who fell during WW1.
      One each from the 7th bn & 15th bn Royal Irish Rifles but especially the third who served in the 15th bn Central Ontario Regiment who fell, killed in action on 9th April 1917.

      Their names liveth forever more

        Hope you don't mind me adding to your thread.

        My dad served throughout the war, joining as a boy seaman in early 1914 aged 15. Considering the wounds he received and his many actions, i'm lucky to be here.

        My uncle Arthur (Dads older brother) did not return. Although dad WOULD talk about his own service, he never once mentioned his brothers loss. Here's Arthurs information...

        ... and he's commemorated on the Menin gate. At a more personal level, his loss is remembered together with his mothers (My Grandmother) on her tombstone in Aldham churchyard in Essex where he was born. If you ever pass through the quite village, take a moment to visit them both...

        regards
