Just 19 years old

When some were told

We need your all

Or our Country will fall


They said their goodbyes

Among their families cries

Never knowing for sure

If they’d return to shore


The horror endured

As they lost friends adored

Unbearably worse

Than they could possibly converse


Is it too much to ask

That their dreadful task

Be remembered whatever

With thanks forever?

    AMEN TO THAT DARRELL. ………. I don’t know if this is just my take on today, but I watched with sober attention, the Remembrance in Paris, and in London. A remarkable difference seemed to show in the two Capital Cities. Both ceremonies were fantastic, with the two Nations forces on parade being incredibly excellent, yet a difference was seen by me.
    In Paris, the Heads of State were centered as observers and witnesses to the French Nation, and President of France J.M.F. Macron was in his element as the centre character, with his flag and La Marseillaise.
    In London, the Crown pays respect to the fallen, and the mood is one of genuine Remembrance. They are joined by Government and Church. Also, at last, the representative of Germany takes his part.
    Paris and London, doing what is required to mark the 100 years from the WW1 Armistice, but with such noticeable difference. One is all flash and celebrity in the rain. The other is the people, in celebration and mourning, in the sunshine !

    So the Germans are allowed to take part in the Remembrance Day parade in London but not the Rhodesian veterans who hold a separate parade near Westminster Abbey. I am not against the Germans being allowed now but surely all those who fought in both WW1 and WW2 and were part of the Commonwealth then should be in the parade.

      I don’t pretend to have all the facts in this matter Alec, but doesn’t this problem go back to the Ian Smith and Harold Wilson time, in the mid 1960s, before Rhodesia became Zimbabwe, and a ‘basket case’ Nation ?
      I did read somewhere that Ian Smith joined the RAF as a fighter pilot in WW2, so apart from Rhodesia being ‘old political history’, this seems to be a ‘British Nonsense’. As such, it is something that UK/GB does so well !
