"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."


Freedom was won on that beach.

And end that had previously seemed out of

reach was no longer a lifetime away,

because everything changed on that day.


From Utah down to Pegasus Bridge,

on the tide, in orchards, on every ridge,

they fought to liberate, many fell.

But the fortunate lived to proudly tell

the tales of friends left at the shore, on

the day they changed the course for war.


We honour here the few who remain

and the forever young who were gently

lain in ordered rows on foreign land.

Always remembered, our bonded band

of brothers who gave their lives abroad

on the burning sands of Gold and Sword.
