November 11th – 2009 – Remembrance Day

Let us take a moment to remember those who have gone before us and put their lives in danger in the line of duty.  Let us remember those who were not fortunate to come home to their loved ones and who died trying to make this world a better place to live in. When Cannons Fade salutes you.

Those Once Loyal

Valiant in the midst of conflict
In memoriam honours distinctive
At half-mast the colours are raised
The tragic waste of life once gave

Immortalised plaque of remembrance
With reverence their names are listed
Glorified and in honour held
In commemorance of those that fell

To those once loyal now wreathed in crimson
Solemn reminder of silent sacrifice
To the once loyal forever wrapped in glory
In white crossed acres – lines of sorrow laid

To those once loyal now wreathed in crimson
Solemn reminder of silent sacrifice
To the once loyal forever wrapped in glory
In white crossed acres – lines of sorrow laid

Brave are the deeds
Of fallen victorious
Never forgotten
Lonely are the glorious
