WoD - Monday 12th November, 2018

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 condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

WoD - Friday 10th November, 2017

For The Fallen

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 condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
 

Today we celebrate Remembrance Day. But this time it isn't about the workout, it is about something far bigger. It is about celebrating and honouring those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. It is about remembering that this spirit of courage, bravery and sacrifice continues to the present day, with those men and women of HM Armed Forces deployed around the globe, far from their loved ones, fighting for what they believe to be right. 

"When you go Home, tell them of us and say, 
For your Tomorrow, we gave our Today"
