The Last Post

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.

Stanzas from For The Fallen written by Laurence Binyon in 1914, pictures Nick White.  Additional pictures can be seen in the album here.
