With Rememebrance Day, Veteran's Day, Armistice Day, approaching, here's a Canadian flavour poem...
OF BATTLES PAST, BATTLES NOW AND BATTLES YET TO COME.
Vimy Ridge. The Battle of Britain. The Battle of the Atlantic. Hong Kong. Dieppe. Sicily. Juno Beach. The Falaise Gap. The Liberation of Holland. Kap Yung. These are just some of the battles long ago
that are etched in Canada's collective memory bank. Battles lost and battles won, in blinding snows and blazing sun. Sadly, we now add new names to
Our memory bank: Kosovo. The Gulf. Khandahar. Sadder still, there will, inevitably, be future battles and more names to remember on each chilly November morn. But remember them we shall. Remember them we must.
